Cricket’ll be destroyed if foreign teams don’t tour Pakistan: Younus Khan

Sunday, November 2, 2008

Senior batsman of Pakistan cricket team Younus Khan said that cricket in Pakistan would be destroyed if foreign team do not tour the country.

In an interview to an Australian newspaper, Younus Khan said that Australia did not tour Pakistan since 1998 for security reasons. They refused to participate in an important event like the Champions Trophy and insisted to shift the series to neutral grounds. These decisions are going to be causes of destruction of cricket in Pakistan.

He said that the people of Pakistan are taking great interest in cricket and they want to watch Brett Lee, Shaun Tate and Ricky Ponting playing at Pakistan grounds.

Younus said that if Australians do not tour Pakistan then Pakistan cricket would be damaged. Australia should think over it and should take it seriously because it is the duty of the international teams to promote cricket and not to destroy it.

The security situation needs to vastly improve before teams will tour there again.

Will Pakistan Premier League gain success just like Indian Premier League ?
