‘RETURN OF CRICKET TO PAK WILL TAKE TIME’
The ICC ruled out an “overnight miraculous” return of international cricket to Pakistan even though it was satisfied with the successful staging of the Independence Cup in Lahore.
“Returning full-time international cricket back to Pakistan is not going to be an overnight miracle. It has to take time. The PSL final was the first step, this is the second,” ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said .
“We have now shown that events can be staged in one city over a short period of time in a Twenty20 format. Now next steps have to be taken.”
