ISLAMABAD: Former New Zealand all-rounder Grant Elliott, who is a part of the World XI squad touring Pakistan for a three-match Twenty20 series, is looking forward to going to Lahore, which he feels like visiting home.
“I have never been to Lahore so I’m really looking forward to that. I suppose, going to Lahore will feel like I am going home,” Pakpassion.net – an online news portal – quoted Elliott as saying.
He said it is exciting to be playing cricket in Pakistan and also making a difference and playing a small part in bringing cricket back to Pakistan.
“I hope that we are potentially taking a small step to bringing international cricket back to Pakistan at some stage,” he said.
He said he is hopeful that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) would be able to provide the same level of security as provided at the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final at the Gaddafi Stadium.
“These matches in Lahore will be a step or perhaps the turning point for international cricket to return to Pakistan,” he said.
The World XI will play three Twenty20s for the Independence Cup against Pakistan at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on September 12, 13 and 15. – APP
