Karachi: Australia’s left-handed batsman Usman Khawaja thinks that his country’s cricket team must visit Pakistan next year.
The five-time world champion last toured Pakistan in 1998. The 34-year-old Khawaja opined that there is no reason for Kangaroos to not visit the country.
“The responsibility is on Australia to tour Pakistan. I think Australia should one hundred percent tour Pakistan,” Khawaja said while talking to Cricwick.
“I think Pakistan in the last four or five years has showed enough that security here is extremely good, players are extremely comfortable coming here for the PSL, and so I think it’s an opportunity for Australia. I’ve heard England are also touring Pakistan this year. It will be good for cricket. Pakistan has played lot of cricket in Dubai, now they need to play at home,” he added.
It must be noted Australia are scheduled to tour Pakistan in February of 2022 for two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is.
Remember, Khawaja is in Abu Dhabi and will be representing Islamabad United in the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021.
