PCB CEO Wasim Khan said that Pakistan is strong to host major International Cricket Council (ICC) events in near future.

Wasim said that they have submitted an expression of interest with ICC to host at least six major events including ICC Men’s World Cup, U19 World Cup, Women’s World Cup, and T20 World Cup.

He further added to his statement,

Pakistan is committed to providing a safe, secure, and healthy environment to visiting teams during the pandemic. “We will not only learn from our own experience but will also try to take a leaf from how other countries implemented SOPs and set bubbles for their respective series.“

PCB is also looking for maximum cricket on a home and away basis with bigger countries like Australia, England, South Africa, and England in its next Future Tour Programme from 2023 to 2027.

“Our upcoming FTP is very important; we have started working to set slots. It is important for us that we play the home and away series against big nations like Australia, England, New Zealand, and South Africa in the next cycle. We will have maximum series against bigger nations,” he said.

Wasim Khan also added that the board is working to increase the number of test matches in each series.

“We will play at least three-match test series in the future,” he said.
