LAHORE: International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman Shashank Manohar has welcomed the return of international cricket to Pakistan ahead of the Independence Cup commencing from Tuesday here at the Gaddafi Stadium.

Shashank Manohar, in a statement made available on Monday, said: “This is a good day for world cricket as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hosts World XI in Lahore for three T20 International games.”

Manohar added, “It has been a long and tough journey as the PCB, Pakistan players and fans have been starved of the opportunity to stage, play and watch international cricket in their own country. I am hopeful that today marks the start of the safe and steady return of international cricket to Pakistan.”

He stated that Pakistan’s ability to play international cricket at home is crucial to the long-term health of the game in Pakistan and one of the main reasons why the ICC established the Pakistan Task Force under the leadership of Giles Clarke to explore in partnership with the PCB, how we can get international cricket back to Pakistan safely and on a regular basis.

“I send both teams and the PCB the very best wishes from the whole cricket family for a competitive series that the passionate fans in Pakistan can enjoy. I sincerely hope that this week’s games mark the start of a steady flow of international cricket to this great cricket nation.” – APP
