Pakistan heralds worldwide cricket return with win

Pakistan has to work to draw big teams back: ICC chief Pakistan heralds worldwide cricket return with win
Howard Terry | 16 September, 2017, 00:57

World cricket's governing body wants worldwide teams back in Pakistan after an eight-year absence due to security concerns but cautioned that it could be a "long process". The World XI is playing against the Pakistan cricket team in a three-match T20I series right now.

Collingwood is the only English player in the World XI for a series that represents a major step on the road to worldwide cricket returning to Pakistan.

Pakistan, sent into bat by the World XI, hit 197-5 in the first Twenty20 as the nation celebrated the return of global cricket under massive security in Lahore.

Richardson said it was too early to say when the PCB could host a full bilateral series and organize worldwide games in other big cities like Karachi and Rawalpindi.

"It's a long process", said Richardson, quoted in a Cricinfo report. "I think the next step is to improve capabilities to areas and cities outside of Lahore itself".

Barring a limited-overs series against Zimbabwe in 2015, Pakistan has not hosted worldwide cricket since militants attacked a bus carrying the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in 2009, wounding six players and killing two civilians and six security officials. "However after the Independence Cup, when we, in phases, start holding global matches in Karachi and other centres, the country will be able to host full series with matches staged in all the cities, and this will improve our financial position", the Dawn quoted Sethi, as saying.

Dave Richardson said ICC can not force India to play bilateral matches.

Fourteen players from seven countries - South Africa, Australia, England, West Indies, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and New Zealand - formed the World XI which is led by South Africa's Faf du Plessis. Most of these players have shown positive attitude towards playing in Pakistan and are excited about being a part of this monumental series.

He said ICC remained neutral when it came to Indo-Pak cricket relations.

Pakistani cricket fans watch a match between World XI and Pakistan at Gaddafi stadium, in Lahore. And although the Gaddafi Stadium witnessed a full house for the first two matches, the cricket-loving public had to go through very stringent security rigours.
