Ambrose happy over restoration of international cricket in Pakistan


LONDON: One of the finest bowlers that West Indies has ever produced, Curtly Ambrose expressed pleasure over resumption of international cricket in Pakistan, ARY News has learnt.

Speaking at the launch of his book ‘Curtly Ambrose – Time to Talk’, Curtly Ambrose has said that he was happy with the successful staging of Zimbabwe tour in Pakistan.

“I am hopeful about international cricket returning to the country on a regular basis”, he added.

He was of the view that other international teams should come to Pakistan to play cricket.

Expressing concern over Pakistan’s isolation from cricketing activities, the legendary West Indian cricketer said it was annoying that Pakistan has not been able to host international cricket for a number of years and had to play its entire cricket outside Pakistan.

Sharing his memories attached to cricket in Pakistan, Ambrose said he loved playing in Pakistan as it was always very enjoyable.

He further said that in Pakistan the spectators turned in huge numbers and they enjoyed seeing the West Indies team and they were very sporting crowds who appreciated good cricket from both teams and supported both teams.

Curtly Ambrose said it was never easy playing against Pakistan especially in their home ground, especially against some brilliant players like Imran Khan, Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Inzamam-ul-Haq.
