Arrival Of International Cricket In Pakistan

(Zuhaib Khan, )

The International cricket in Pakistan has banned since 2009 after the attack on Srilanka team in Lahore, since then Pakistan have not host even a single international cricket match. Pakistan was have to host the world cup 2011 but due to the serious security threats and deteriorating  Condition of peace all the matches were hosted by India, Srilanka and Bangladesh.

There is a serious loss of in the economy of Pakistan while playing in the most expensive venues of Dubai and Abu Dhabi as a home ground. Though the former army chief General Raheel Sharif had started the counterterrorist operation so called “Zarb –e Azab. Karachi whose Peace was fully destroyed in the hands of terrorists, it was a big challenge to bring peace back to the city, Rangers were allowed to conduct the operations against TTP, Al Qaeda group. And other military wings. Now this city is secure and peaceful as compared to the older times.

Najam Sethi the one of the PCB official decided to organize Pakistan’s biggest cricket event. The Pakistan super league. Whose 1st edition was played in United Arab Emirates. In the year 2017 the second edition, Najam Sethi make attempts to play the PSL 2017 final in Lahore.

By the grace of god, along with security forces Police, Army and Rangers involvement in the security of the grand final. As a result of the deliberate efforts made by the PCB. We succeeded to set the final in Lahore. Though Peshawar Zalmi has won the title but actually this was the Victory of our nation. Many big names of the Caribbean stars like Darren Sammy, Marlon Samuels and others played the final. This gave a clear message that Pakistan is a land of peace.

Actually PSL is the first development to bring International cricket to home. Najam Sethi has announced that in the PSL 2018,total of 8 matches to be played in Karachi. That is a good sign for international as well as our domestic level of cricket. Because the young emerging talented players when allowed to play along with the big stars like Kevin Peterson, Brendon McCollum, Chris Gayle, ,Eionmorgan and many more. Also PCB is trying to hire some other Names like AB devillers, Davidwarner, JamesFaulkner, Bennstokes. If they agree to play the next PSL it will be proud to all of us as a nation. We must need to make sure strengthen our security furthermore, because if we succeed hosting at least 8 matches in Pakistan, then it will be very much helpful for us in hosting the bilateral series against a top quality side like Australia, India, South Africa and England. That can only be done by the proper security and Peace. If we fail to do so then no foreign player will agree to play in Pakistan. Like in the PSL 2017 Kevin Peterson, Luke Wright and Tymal Mills refused to play in Lahore due to security threats, So maintaining peace and full proof security to foreign players is a step towards the arrival of international cricket to Pakistan. The recent operation “Radd ul Fasad” led by the general Qamar Javed Bajwa is a genuine step against terrorist groups.
