    "Bringing MCC as the 1st non-Asian touring team to come to Pak is a huge achievement" : Wasim Khan

    Wasim Khan at a press conference with Kumar Sangakkara:

    "On behalf of the PCB, I'd like to welcome the MCC. Particularly Kumar Sangakkara. Back in September, I was invited to the ICC World Cricket Committee to make a presentation on the security situation in Pakistan.

    "What became apparent from an early time was that Kumar was a huge advocate for Pakistan. He was an ambassador for bringing cricket back to Pakistan and he understood what it meant for the nation to have cricket on home soil. It's a momentous occasion for us to have the MCC coming back to Pakistan after 48 years.

    "MCC is the biggest and most prestigious cricket club in the world, based at Lord's, the Home of Cricket. This is a very symbolic moment for us. We've seen huge progress over the past few months to bring white-ball cricket to Pakistan sustainably. But more importantly, Test cricket which is the health check of a cricketing nation.

    "Getting cricket back and bringing MCC as the first non-Asian touring team to come to Pakistan is a huge achievement, a great moment for us and we're delighted that we invited MCC and they accepted.

    "The MCC is made up of a lot of good FC players, established FC players. We're delighted that we've got a number of counties represented in this squad. I'd like to extend our thanks as a nation for his support and for the MCC's in coming over to Pakistan.

    "Asian teams are coming to Pakistan but to get the MCC here is a major coup. To understand the symbolic nature of the MCC, you need to look at the history of the game and where cricket has emanated from. MCC have been the custodians of the game for a long time, based at Lord's. For us to secure the MCC and for them to come to Pakistan is a huge coup for us. Until we break that barrier of having non-Asian countries coming, it's always going to be difficult to make that first step.

    "Kumar has been adamant from the word go that Pakistan was a safe place to play cricket. There was a need to bring cricket back to the country for the nation and the people. Also for our sustainability as a nation. We thrive on youngsters growing up on the streets playing cricket and we need local role models and it's difficult to have them when they're playing thousands of miles away in the UAE.

    "To have cricket back in our own nation, youngsters will watch the game and see their heroes play. We need the youngsters coming through wanting to be the next Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Babar Azam or Shaheen Afridi.

    "We're expecting SA to make a decision in the next few days. The board are supportive, they're speaking to the players to address any issues or concerns they might have.

    "There's a huge willingness from the BCCI and PCB to play against eachother. Cricket is the thing that we as a nation love and the Indian people love. Sadly, there are always political factors involved that are outside our control. Realistically, bilateral series may not happen for a period of time but ultimately, cricket transcends all barriers and brings nations and people together. At some stage, we will resume cricket because that's what the people and players of both countries want.

    "When we apply state level security, which the PM signs off, some protocols have to be followed. It's not ideal for Lahore, Karachi, etc., for roads to be closed off, shops in the vicinity are closed. We understand that it creates a disruption for people. We have to find the balance that is right where players and officials feel comfortable and also to not hinder the lives of people living in those cities. We haven't got it right yet but as more countries come, it will become easier. We can start to lower the level of security.

    "With the MCC team, we've organised for them to play golf. PSL teams will be playing golf and will be going to shopping centres, they will be doing as many normal things as possible but there is a protocol that we have to follow. We're never going to become complacent as a country, we've seen major things happen here in the past and we're moving forward. We're delighted that cricket is coming back to normality gradually.

    "We are hopeful of putting a strong case to the ICC for hosting at least 1 if not 2 ICC global events in the new rights cycle.

    "SA will come to Pakistan in January next year. They will play 2 Tests and 3 T20Is when they come. We will try to provide a more balanced schedule of matches. With short tours, it makes sense to have them in one city."

    Of course it means something... it is, as he is clearly saying, a first step towards getting England, Australia and NZ to tour here. I don’t know why Pk people expect miracles and scoff at anything less than that... everything takes time and effort.

    No itís not. All of these tours are important to ensure that we hold teams for Ransom when they refuse to tour, and have to concede free ICC points. Or they have no choice to send a C team as the lives of A team guys are far more valuable apparently.

    ? What are you basing your 20 years away figure on? Australia have said they will strongly consider touring on 2023 when they are next scheduled to come to Pakistan according to FTP. That is the target and you cannot just sit around waiting for it to happen. You have to take these steps to reassure the world.

    Absolutely amazing to see when people just throw random numbers out of nothing to make a point. It's like being in a corporate meeting when someone who is asked a simple question first stutters, then stumbles, then throws mumbo jumbo in the form of corporate jargon ultimately finishing the diatribe with arbitrary numbers as a final act.


    Azaadi. InshAllah.

    Where do these random numbers come from? If PSL goes successfully, those teams will play at least LOI cricket in Pakistan, if not test cricket.

    Hosting cricket without any incidents is vital to get cricket full time back into Pakistan. Don't get how people are complaining about this. Sangakkara coming is a big boost. Remember he was 1 of the players attacked and he is still willing to travel now.

    Some people just expect Australia and New Zealand to come running at the first opportunity. They will only come when they have seen many tours being held safely. So we need to have tours like these without any incidents.

    Thank you. There are steps that need to be taken. Like u said people expect for the top teams to come right away. You have to build confidence and have a good reputation with other boards. U also have to communicate very well and in a professional way which Wasim Khan does and inshaallah will continue to do so

    I don't think anyone is expecting them to come any time soon. Simple reason - they don't have an FTP planned for a few years. However, if things go as planned, we should see them play a large chunk of their next series in Pakistan, if not all of it. IMO, holding PSL is far more important than any tour. PSL a lot more difficult given the number of games and number of players, so that will build a lot more confidence than individual tours.

    Read this from Sangakkara:

    "A tour to Pakistan by the MCC has been in discussion but until we saw the passion that Wasim had and saw the improvements and arrangements that have been made, it was an eye-opener. Following that presentation, the decision was swiftly made that it's time to actually come and tour this wonderful cricketing nation."

    Going back: Upswing in foreigners for Pakistan’s T20 league

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Security concerns stopped foreign cricketers from touring Pakistan four years ago when the country’s premier domestic Twenty20 tournament was launched, forcing organizers to stage the event on neutral turf in the United Arab Emirates.

    When the 2020 edition of the Pakistan Super League starts in Karachi on Thursday, Darren Sammy of the West Indies and Shane Watson of Australia will be among 36 foreign cricketers involved in the six franchises.

    “The foreign players coming is a huge bonus for us,” Pakistan Cricket Board chief executive Wasim Khan told the Associated Press. “It’s a massive step forward because they (foreign players) clearly believe that it’s safe to be here for 4-5 weeks.”

    The return of international cricket has been a slow process in Pakistan following a terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team’s bus in Lahore during a test series in 2009.

    For this T20 event, the PCB has worked with the Federation of International Cricketers Association and also shared its security plans with foreign stars to make them feel safe in Pakistan.

    “We firmly believe now that we are in a good position,” Wasim said. “We’re delighted there are so many players coming here and it’s a great endorsement for us as a country.”

    Pakistan cricket went into isolation for more than six years after the attack near Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore in 2009.

    There was a ray of hope in 2015 when Zimbabwe toured for limited-overs series but it wasn’t enough for the Pakistan to host its first PSL tournament the following year, forcing organizers to stage it in the UAE.

    In 2017, the PSL final was played at a packed Gaddafi Stadium, in stark contrast to the group-stage matches that were contested in mostly empty venues in the UAE.

    Over the next two years, a World XI, Sri Lanka and the West Indies also played limited-overs matches in Pakistan, and more PSL games were staged in Lahore and Karachi.

    The PCB overcame another barrier when it hosted test matches last year in Pakistan for the first time in a decade. Pakistan successfully hosted two tests against Sri Lanka in December and, after a lot of negotiations, last month managed to convince Bangladesh to play a test in Rawalpindi.

    All the ‘cricket comes home’ activities, of course, require heavy security surrounding the foreign teams, with the kind of armed security and road closures usually reserved for visiting heads of state . Visiting players have had virtually no movement outside the team hotels or match venues — although a few Sri Lanka players went to a shopping mall while they stayed in the federal capital.

    But Wasim believes that over time, the blanket security can be eased and players will feel more relaxed.

    “Certainly it’s something that we are looking at,” he said. “The more we play at home, the more confidence people have, the better it will become. We certainly can’t sustain state-level security.”

    More freedom of movement for visiting players and ensuring costs for security don’t overburden federal and local governments has to be balanced, Wasim said, with “making sure we never become complacent and we provide the right level of security.”

    In a bid to reassure cricket officials from countries such as Australia, England, New Zealand and South Africa about the security situation, Pakistan invited the Marylebone Cricket Club — the guardians of the laws of cricket — for limited-overs matches in Lahore.

    Led by ex-Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara, who is also MCC president, the players have had VIP-level security, which is a slightly lower level than that provided to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka squads for recent series.

    “MCC have played golf ... so we’ve given them level of freedom which under VIP status you can afford. Certainly that’s something that we wish to moving forward as well,” Wasim said.

    Sangakkara has also backed Pakistan’s efforts to resume international cricket in Pakistan.

    “Security is always a major concern everywhere is the world,” Sangakkara said. “In Pakistan I think the steps that have been taken over the past few years have instilled great amounts of confidence in the cricketing nations beyond the shores of Pakistan and slowly but surely that confidence is building up.

    “The more times international sides tour that message becomes stronger and becomes harder to ignore.”

    And Wasim believes the need for Pakistan to ‘host’ international cricket series in neutral countries is closer to ending.

    “There’s no reason for us to play anywhere else now,” Wasim said. “Cricket has firmly resumed within the country and we fully expect this to be the way moving forward.”

    "Hosting intl cricket is not a big issue for Pak as the security situation has improved": Wasim Khan

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wants the International Cricket Council (ICC) to award them the hosting rights of a major event in lieu of the financial losses suffered due to India's refusal to play a bilateral series against them.

    PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan asserted that Pakistan is prepared to host a major ICC event sometime in 2023.

    "I don't think hosting international cricket is now such a big issue for Pakistan as the security situation has improved now," Khan said.

    "The fact that we have logistically hosted the entire Pakistan Super League in Pakistan and also teams like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh for Test matches besides other smaller events and series shows we are capable of hosting a big ICC event."

    Khan said that if Pakistan gets a major ICC event it would make sense as it has suffered lot of financial losses due to India's refusal to play matches in India or Pakistan for some years now and also because there appears to be no chance of any Indo-Pakistan series taking place in the near future.

    "There appears to be little chance of India and Pakistan playing and we have already suffered losses in millions of dollars."

    He said that the chief executives of cricket Boards will have a video conference with the ICC to discuss World T20 Cup, Asia Cup and World Test Championship.

    "There is no doubt that because of the coronavirus pandemic every board is facing a big challenge to reduce their financial losses as much as they can. We are all in the same boat. We have similar interests. When this conference is held we will be discussing future measures."

    Khan said the aim is to prepare an alternate plan whenever cricket resumes.

    He also backed the plea of Pakistan's head coach and chief selector, Misbah-ul-Haq that even if the World Test Championship is rescheduled every team should get a fair opportunity.

    Misbah has advised the ICC to even extend the time frame of the Test championship if required.

    Khan said that it was true that Pakistan wanted to play more Test matches but at the same time it wanted a balance in the revised international schedule of matches to keep itself financially stable.

    He conceded that most of the Boards relied a lot on their share from ICC events for financial stability.

    He also insisted that a window would be created later this year to complete the remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches and it could also give the PCB a chance to perhaps try out new venues.

    "It is not a joke that we just award the trophy to Multan Sultans on points basis we need to close the PSL 5 by having remaining matches," he said.

    One step at a time please. Pakistan has a long way to go in terms of upgrading its remaining Cricket Stadiums. ICC also requires 5 star plus hotels and facilities close to the stadiums. We are talking about billions of Rs in expenditures and a few years before we see the results.

    All these tours are important.

    You must also try to think from an English or NZ administrator point of view. Even if you privately have the view that the tour is ok, it is another matter to try to enforce that on a playing group where there are one or two reluctant travellers.

    What a tour like the MCC tour does is 3 fold;
    1) it increases the pool of players who HAVE played in Pakistan (a relatively rare thing now sadly) & can come back and influence others with positive word of mouth.

    2) it gives an extra player of assurance, evidence and a tool to _give the administrator the ability_ to come to the playing group and say, "look, we are not playing games with your lives, you are not being used as guinea pigs to _test_ safety, we are satisfied it is safe, look at PPL, MCC Tour etc. It takes away one of the arguments from the reluctant player & gives an extra credit to the administrator & further proof to security analysts.

    3) Each tour further normalises the idea of cricket in Pakistan. Overseas teams see themselves as bigger targets for madmen than local PSL teams/players (you can argue the truth of that but that is how they think).
    Pointing at one tour or match in one city, once, with enormous security is one thing. Not entirely convincing. The ability to secure regular tours in multiple cities gives teams the breathing space to say, "yes, ok. It's not just a one off, cricket is happening in Pakistan all the time now. We can go."

    Hosting one or two series isn't normalised. Regular tours is normalised. All these tours are good experience for your players & good news for bringing more & more cricket to Pakistan.

    Word of mouth is the reason that MCC tour was so important. All those players play in counties with 15 other teammates.

    2022 will be the litmus Test with Australia, New Zealand and England due to tour Pakistan or play Pakistan in an away series in Test Cricket.

    Convincing those teams and Australia in particular is going to be a real challenge for Wasim Khan.

    Despite his links with the ECB we recently saw England women play Pakistan in Malaysia which was disappointing given West Indies and Bangladesh women had toured successfully in the same year.

    MUMBAI: Pakistan, Malaysia and a consortium involving the West Indies and the United States are the only three interested full and associate members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) who have come forward with an Expression of Interest (EOI) to host the governing body's events for the period 2023 to 2031.

    In February this year, ICC CEO Manu Sawhney had written to all its full and associate members suggesting that the EOIs would help shape the RFT process and gauge the initial interest of the members and their respective governments in hosting ICC events for the next rights cycle.

    Among the many things that annexures in Sawhney's letter included was receiving a guarantee that there would be tax exemptions granted by the hosting nations.

    "England and Australia have refused to participate. India did not even bother responding. Even New Zealand has told the ICC very clearly that there won't be any EOIs until the ICC chalks its international calendar for the 2023-31 rights cycle," say those in the know.
