Najam Sethi, who is the head of the PCB executive committee, is adamant that Pakistan will not play a series in India until their neighbours take part in a home series. India has not played a home series with Pakistan from the year 2007 which has meant that Pakistan suffered financial losses and those can only be recouped by giving Pakistan a home series.
“We are ready to resume bilateral cricket ties with them but either in Pakistan or any other venue, not in India. We want a full “home” series so that we recoup our financial losses which we have faced over the years due to India not playing us,” Sethi told reporters (via Press Trust of India)
Sethi reiterated the fact that they are patient on hosting international teams in Pakistan, on the advice of Prime Minister but they will make sure that the opening and final match of second edition of PSL is held in Pakistan.
“We ourselves are being patient on hosting international teams and not pushing anyone as our Prime Minister wants us to be cautious. Any small incident would put our cricket back by 10 years. But we want to have the opening match and final of the second edition of the PSL in Pakistan for sure,”Sethi said
