Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan is holding his hopes on Australia’s tour to Pakistan now after England cricket yesterday proclaimed they will be visiting the country after 16 years.
Wasim Khan told to the international news agency:
“There is no reason right now Australia won’t be coming”
The Cricket Australia last visited Pakistan in 1998 and then never looked back due to security reasons. Though, many Australian cricketers have visited the country recently while participating in Pakistan Super League (PSL) including Shane Watson, Ben Dunk, Chris Lynn, Ben Cutting and the late Dean Jones.
With England cricket ready to send its A-team to the country now, the highly-awaited recommencement of Australian team playing in Pakistan looks to move a step closer towards the big teams of cricket now officially comes to Pakistan.
In a statement released by PCB on Wednesday, Wasim Khan implicit at a possible return of Australian cricket team to Pakistan in early 2022. “We also expect Australia to visit Pakistan for their Future Tours Programme commitment in early 2022,” Wasim Khan said.
Though, there has been no official agreement between the two boards yet, the PCB CEO is optimistic about a favorable outcome. “Our international cricket departments are working together on the schedule for February and March 2022”
“There’s been no formal announcement at the moment because there is still a lot of cricket to be played. But all things going well, we’re looking forward to welcoming them in 2022,” Wasim Khan added.
