Australia’s former head coach Darren Lehmann has labeled Pakistan as a “beautiful place” and urged Cricket Australia to permission a tour to the cricket-starved nation.
Lehman was a part of the Australian team that visited Pakistan in 1998, which remains their last tour of the country. The Kangaroos dodged the tour of Pakistan for the next decade due to political instability before the 2009 attack on Sri Lankan team has put the proposal to bed completely.
Over the past few years, though, the security situation in Pakistan has changed dramatically, with England signing up for a late 2021 tour recently, and Lehmann believes Australia should do the same.
“I really enjoyed my tour there” said Lehmann. Their passion for the game is second to none. I can’t see why we wouldn’t go back if everything is safe, for the good of the game in their country.”
