Australia’s tour will ensure other top teams visit Pakistan: Wasim


Former CEO of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Wasim Khan welcomed the Australian cricket team to Pakistan and termed it a “huge occasion” for not only cricket fans in Pakistan but also around the globe.

On the occasion, Wasim said that “he gets very excited about the tour like all other Pakistanis and cricket lovers as it is a huge occasion for the whole nation”. He said that this will send out a “huge message” to the world.

All the details for this tour were final-ised, including the rescheduling of the Pakistan Super League (PSL)’s seventh edition, due to Australia’s tour to Pakistan. He further revealed that just before the start of the first Test between Pakistan and Australia at Rawal-pindi, the CEO of Cricket Australia Nick Hockley had sent him a personal message of gratitude for his involvement and efforts to initially set the details and itinerary of the tour.

“Hockley thanked me for all the hard work that was done for nearly 18 months to finalise the details of the tour,” said Wasim.

Wasim said that it wasn’t just a single person’s work but a team effort as many people played their part to make this possible. “I have been in regular contact with Cricket Australia’s management and also players like Usman Khwaja,” he added.
