Pakistan Cricket Board’s Interim Management Committee has asked for the help of Pakistan government to attempt to revive International cricket matches in the country.
The board will soon meet Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif soon to seek support and help from the government to get a chance to host international cricket games.
Pakistan has not hosted any international matches since March 2009 when terrorists attacked the team bus carrying Sri Lankan cricket players in Lahore. Some of Sri Lankan players were injured while six security men and two civilians were dead during the attack.
Pakistan later tried to bring cricket back to Pakistan inviting some foreign players to participate in a T20 league but the plan was later cancelled.
Pakistan Cricket Board had also invited Bangladesh Cricket Board to play a series in 2012 but Bangladesh cancelled their tour because of security reason after committing to tour Pakistan.
ICC withdraws Pakistan as a venue to host matches of ICC 2011 World Cup because of security reason.
Pakistan now uses UAE to play international cricket for their ‘home series’ after the attack.
