Australia captain Aaron Finch has expressed his desire to play in Pakistan, ahead of his team’s 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup clash against Pakistan.  

The Aussie skipper said on Tuesday that he would love to play in Pakistan, if an opportunity arises.

The right-handed opener also pointed out the experiences of players who took part in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches.

"The fans that travel, that support Pakistan are so passionate, we see," he said. "When the Pakistan Super League was played there, the fans were selling out grounds in minutes.”

He added: "From all reports, the guys who played there said it was an amazing time to play cricket in Pakistan, just for them to have cricket back in their home country where there's so much love and passion for the game is incredible.”
