Legendary Pakistanis fast bowler Shoiab Akhtar says hosting foreign cricket teams in Pakistan currently not safe.
Akhtar’s comment came days after Quetta Police Training Institute attack which left over 60 cadets dead.
At the same time it will be relevant to mention here that at PSL Draft days back, Najam Sethi announced that PSL 2017 will have its Final in Lahore. He also told that international players signing in for the draft were already told about this move and they accepted.
Now Shoaib Akhtar’s latest comments would surely have damaged Sethi’s efforts to bring back international cricket in Pakistan.
“Until there is a complete normalcy as far as security situation is concerned we shouldn’t take the risk of inviting any foreign team to Pakistan,” he said on Geo News channel.
“The security situation is such that we will have to be patient. I am sure international cricket will return to Pakistan but it will take some time,” he added.
