‘I toured Australia for work, not for holiday’ clears PCB’s CEO Wasim Khan


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s CEO Wasim Khan is clear about his aims and is strongly focusing on the complete revival of international cricket in Pakistan.

Khan replied to those talking of him enjoying holidays in Australia during the Pakistan team’s Test and T20I series. He indicated some positive response from Cricket Australia (CA) towards sending their team to Pakistan in the near future.

“I know some people were talking about me enjoying holidays in Australia but I know what I did there and results of my this tour will also come out soon,

“See, my plans are pretty clear and our first priority is to revive international cricket in Pakistan. What people think is not something important for us, our focus is to build good cricketing relations with boards like Australia, England, and South Africa,” Khan said while talking to the media in Lahore.

Khan, a former ECB official, revealed that his meeting with CA was based on three important points.

“Firstly, we talked about Australia’s tour to Pakistan in 2022 to play a two-test series. Further, we discussed playing our home series against them in Pakistan as our team faces difficulties there,” he said.

“Secondly, I met South Wales’ officials to discuss scholarship exchange programs. This will help our players to get international exposure. My third point was to formulate a four-year program according to which our U19 and A team will tour Australia once in a year,” Khan added.
