“The Taliban follow the Pakistan cricket team with keen interest so this can be a platform”
Pakistan’s Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, has announced that he is interested in hosting the Taliban for a cricket match in order to restore peace and stability to the war-torn country.
Khan added that the cricket match could also help revive peace talks, which were put on hold recently after militants executed 23 soldiers they kidnapped.
“I have information that the Taliban keep an interest in cricket,” Khan said. “So if this message can go through to them, we can have a cricket match with them which can have a better result.
