Pakistani Cricketers Can’t Hide Their Excitement At The News Of Cricket Coming Home Again

These are good times for Pakistan Cricket. Earlier in the year, the boys in green brought the Champions Trophy home under Sarfraz’s stewardship, who will now be leading out the team against a team comprising of the eleven players from around the cricketing world.

The plan for the match was announced a while ago, but like most cricket series promised by the PCB, everyone in Pakistan was eagerly waiting for the plan to come to fruition. This has finally happened, as Najam Sethi, on Thursday, held a press conference announcing the squads for the match, all but confirming to Pakistanis that they can now get their cricket jerseys washed and ready.


The tour is set to begin from September 12, and a total of three T20 matches have been scheduled to take place at the Qaddafi Stadium, Lahore. It is also reported that the international players took a fair bit of convincing to come over to Pakistan. The one factor which might have made their decision easy are the reports that the PCB have agreed to pay between $75,000 to $100,000 to each visiting cricketer partaking in the series. Not a bad return for a three match series, eh?
