MAMOSA Report — After successfully holding the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final in Lahore recently, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has moved in high gear to invite international teams.
According to reports, Pakistan has invited Bangladesh to play two T20 matches in Pakistan before their Pakistan’s tour to Bangladesh in July-August.
The PCB wants Bangladesh to tour the country in May, hoping it would strengthen Pakistan’s case of reviving international cricket at home.
The PCB held the PSL final under tight security in Punjab’s capital on March 5 with a number of foreign players participating– with resounding success and renowned commentators saying ‘Cricket has come back to Pakistan.’
In recent years, the PCB has invited several foreign teams but have only succeeded in hosting Zimbabwe, Kenya and Afghanistan.
The country’s cricket governing body, the ICC, said Ireland and the West Indies were also willing to tour but cancelled their plans following bomb blasts on two occasions.
