Karachi: Former English fast bowler Dominic Cork has changed his opinion regarding Pakistan and will be part of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) commentary panel for the fifth edition.
Cork, who is a renowned commentator in England will return to Pakistan after the 2009 attacks on the Sri Lankan cricket team.
At that time, he decided not to come to Pakistan in his life again “I won’t be coming back here while I’m still living. I don’t think international teams should come back to this country, whether it’s 10 or 20 years.” He said in 2009.
Cork, however, shared his excitement on Twitter and termed PSL as one of the strong T20 leagues with the best players taking part in it.
“A strong t20 league, that has some of the most talented and exciting homegrown players. Excellent overseas players too. I’m also looking forward to the big crowds. It should be a fantastic tournament,” he tweeted.
