The volatile security situation in Pakistan continues to scare away foreign cricket team and even Zimbabwe today turned down an invitation to send its under-19 team to the trouble-torn country.
The Pakistan Cricket Board said Zimbabwe had security concerns about playing in Pakistan after which it was decided to send the Pakistan under-19 team to the African country later this year.
PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt said former England skipper Tony Greig’s proposal to arrange a World XI tour of Pakistan has been rejected due to the huge costs involved.
“Yes, we did receive a proposal from Tony Grieg regarding a World XI team tour to Pakistan. Having evaluated it, we concluded that the costs were too high and perhaps the timing of the tour would not have served the purpose for us,” Butt said in statement.
