Big news expected for cricket fans in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - A big news is expected over the return of international cricket in Pakistan as Cricket Australia has hinted for a possible short tour to Pakistan.

Cricket Australia have reportedly eased their stance on a possible tour of Pakistan in March next year.

According to The Age, Cricket Australia were less decisive in their latest opinion on this matter as compared to previous occasions — when they were far more reluctant about visiting Pakistan.

"We are in ongoing discussions with the PCB about the one-day tour in March next year. We recognise the PCB and the Pakistan government are taking every step to improve the security for touring cricket teams and we’ll continue discussions with the PCB, with the safety and security of Australian players and support staff being our number one priority," said a CA spokesman.

The statement came after Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s newly appointed Managing Director Wasim Khan said — in various interviews — that he is willing to address all reservations, which are stopping international sides from visiting Pakistan.
