“PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) is making an amazing showing with regards to in endeavoring to revive global cricket.
I simply trust the World XI visit proceeds and that will practically be the blind raiser to, ideally, recover some universal cricket.”
Pakistan has been compelled to play home matches in the United Arab Emirates.
“Each global match we play as a unit we are playing viably far from home. Away our own conditions and that makes it doubly troublesome,” he said.
