Prime Minister Imran Khan has discussed the possibility of Australia’s tour of Pakistan, during a telephonic conversation with his counterpart Scott Morrison.

According to details, PM Imran believes that bilateral ties between the two countries should resume bearing in mind the improved situation of Covid-19.  

“With better on-ground situation, cricket between the two sides could also be resumed as the Covid-19 pandemic situation improves,” PM Imran said.

Earlier, PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan was also hopeful that England, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia will tour Pakistan in the near future.

“…We are looking forward to welcoming England in 2022 as we are South Africa in January 2021 and then New Zealand, followed by Australia in 2022 as well. We have two big years ahead of us and the MCC tour has paved the way for county sides to visit Pakistan as well. We are also looking to bring in tours by A sides in the future,” Wasim said in an interview with PakPassion.

“With the four big nations coming over to Pakistan, without any disrespect to other cricket playing countries, I have to say that we deserve it as we have worked hard to make it happen. Cricket needs these tours to happen in Pakistan and the fans also deserve to see some of the top nations play cricket on their soil,” he further stated.
