Abbas hopes that neighbours would visit Pakistan
Since the attacks on Sri Lankan team in 2009, Pakistan Cricket team has been banned from hosting any international match. The ban ended when cricket team from Zimbabwe toured Pakistan in May this year. Abbas Ali, an International cricketer was in Sri Lanka recently on Sri Lankan Cricket’s interim committee chairman Sidath Wettimuny’s request. He witnessed the 4th ODI match of Pakistan where Pakistan won the series by 3-1. Abbas was happy to see the performance and enthusiasm levels of the Pakistan team.
Abbas said that the neighbouring nation like Sri Lanka should visit Pakistan as Sri Lanka was there during the attacks of 2009. Sri Lankan team’s visit to Pakistan would boost a lot of confidence in cricketers around the world. He also made a point that the craze of cricket should not die. A sport should not end in a country because of an incident that happened in the past. As Sri Lanka has been a friend to Pakistan, they hopes that the players would soon visit Pakistan and give a fresh start to International Cricket in Pakistan.
The main reason, for countries not visiting Pakistan is terrorism but if the security is like the one that Zimbabwe got in May, hosting international cricket should not be a problem. Abbas also added that they did not stop visiting Sri Lanka when there was turmoil in the Sri Lanka. Now it is time for Sri Lanka to show the same confidence in Pakistan.
The Pakistani team’s performance was phenomenal during the match. There was a high level of energy seen in the team. Abbas also said that, the team was not performing well earlier because they were on-and-off the field. The new players in the team are also doing well, as they want to prove themselves. During the match Pakistani fielding was also excellent. Some things, they did on the field, was never seen before in Pakistani cricket.
There is a lot more to improve in fielding, as there are lesser number of youngsters in the team. What Abbas feels is that, there should be a few seniors and more young players who can perform. If they start now, they will do well in the world cup which is a few years from now.
