Legendary West Indies batsman and Quetta Gladiators mentor Sir Viv Richards firmly believes that Pakistan will host more international matches in the future.
Richards’ comments come as the Pakistan leg of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has begun.
With many international players playing in Pakistan right now, and the fact that Sri Lanka played a Twenty20 International in Lahore in October 2017 while the West Indies played a three-match Twenty20 series in Karachi in April 2018, Richards believes the future is bright for Pakistan.
“Cricket coming back to Pakistan is a slow process. And it’s of vital importance when you look at the support from the public here in Pakistan. We must work hard to ensure that everything is okay for international cricket,” Richards told The News International.
“The people love the game which you have seen here and it sends the message that international cricket needs to be back here. And so long as we get the support and everything along the security line is okay, nothing is wrong with international cricket back in Pakistan. That would be good to see.”
