    "All Islamabad United foreign players have shown their willingness to tour Pakistan" : Dean Jones

    ISLAMABAD, Nov 13 (APP):The Islamabad United’s bowling coach Waqar Younis Monday said young talented players were coming to fore through Pakistan Super League (PSL) which was a good sign for Pakistan Cricket.

    Addressing a press conference here at a local hotel, he said he was hopeful his team would do well in the third edition of PSL.

    “Revival of international cricket in Pakistan is a good omen for Pakistan Cricket,” he said and added that Pakistan Army, Pakistan Police and other institutions have played an important role in reviving international cricket in the country.

    He said Test Cricket is his favorite format of the game. “All Cricket greats have come to fore through Test Cricket and Twenty20 format has a different flavor,” he said.

    He said it would take time to find replacements of Misbah ul Haq and Younis Khan.

    Speaking about the national team, he said attention needed to be drawn towards fielding department and other aspects as well.

    “PCB must pay attention to young players and should improve domestic cricket,” he said.

    On the occasion, Islamabad United head coach Dean Jones praised Wasim Akram for his coaching abilities.

    He said match fixing was a cancer for the game of Cricket. To a question, he said he was asked about only two balls regarding Sharjeel Khan. “I did not tell anything else to the tribunal about Sharjeel,” he said and added I didn’t know what he was upto.

    He said if Islamabad United team made it to the final of PSL then all players would come to Pakistan.

    “All foreign players have shown their willingness to tour Pakistan in the PSL drafting,” he said.

    He said Sri Lankan team’s tour to Pakistan, World XI’s tour and PSL final are steps towards revival of international cricket in Pakistan.

    Jones and Waqar also paid tributes to Saeed Ajmal who had announced to retire from Cricket.

    The article implies that it was Jones who said that the ‘Foreign players are willing’,not Waqar.

    I hope it’s true and they do come.Badree already came with the World XI and Russel in the past said that he was willing to come.

    Just listened in and you're correct, thanks. Fixed. This is what Deano said:

    "All our overseas players are coming to Karachi to play the finals"

    "When we sat down, we made it a prerequisite that we're not going to have players who aren't going to come to Pakistan"

    "As long as you maintain your security, we will come"

    Surprised that Hales would be willing to go. Didn't he back out of touring Bangladesh last year?

    Yes I was going to say the same thing. Hales and Morgan both pulled out of the Bangladesh tour. Maybe Hales was convinced by the players who did go to Bangladesh that when security is good you feel safe!

    Rumours are that whoever has signed up, is willing to travel to Pakistan.

    Would Hales be available for the finals? Isn't England playing a series at that time?

    I think he might miss some if the group stage matches as England will be playing a T20I tri series with NZ and Australia.It’s scheduled to end at Feb 21.

    Same for Billings and Willey.

    Well done Islamabad United. Hopefully any players who do a u turn on this issue will be shown the door and their contracts cancelled with pay forfeited. No more "we are concerned about security" rhetoric should be tolerated. Franchises should have a zero tolerance policy on this issue. Enough is enough. We have been starved of cricket for too long.
