Pakistan Cricket Board has frantically striving to get some cricket in the country and they need every support one could muster. Not only they need the support from the government quarters, they also need support from the common people and the former cricketers and the expatriates.
At one side PCB is trying to get Sri Lanka into the Pakistan and on the other hand they are trying to convince Australia for the tour. Pakistan are hoping that Australia will fulfill their promise and come here on a brief tour in April next year to play a five-match One-day International series. Australia were supposed to play three Tests, five One-day Internationals and a twenty20 game earlier this year. Their decision to stay away from Pakistan left the national cricket team without a single Test in 2008.
Pakistan desperately need the home series against Sri Lanka to provide their action-starved cricketers some tough games at home and also to replenish the PCB’s depleting bank accounts.PCB is currently working extensively on finalising the security package for the proposed home series against Sri Lanka.
PCB is also open to the option of playing the series at some offshore venue in case the Australians decided against touring Pakistan because of security apprehensions.More on:Australia, Pakistan Cricket Board, Sri Lanka, Twenty20
