The incident was highlighted in a letter issued by Cricket Australia
Cricket Australia (CA) has extended their gratitude to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for eradicating a rat infestation problem at the hotel during their tour of Pakistan.
The incident was highlighted in a letter issued by CA, where the board gave a detailed review of their experience of touring Pakistan. The Australian board complimented the security arrangements during the series and other services provided to the team.
"When we arrived at the Hotel in Karachi and there were numerous issues such as rats in rooms, abnormal odours and a range of issues that were unexpected. You [PCB] and your team quickly worked to correct the majority of these problems and within 48 hours we were satisfied that all changes made enabled a safe and comfortable stay," the letter stated.
The Australian board remained thankful for a quality tour.
"From the moment we arrived on the ground in Islamabad we were incredibly well looked after. Everything that had been promised was delivered to an amazing level of detail and thoroughness," it added.
The letter further mentioned that CA remains hopeful of continuing the trend of playing bilateral series at each others' backyards.
"We truly look forward to dealing with you in future and are genuinely grateful for the outstanding role that you played as the logistics and operations manager for our tour," the letter concluded.
Australia toured Pakistan after more than 24 years, which laid a solid foundation for PCB.
