Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) newly-appointed chairman Zaka Ashraf is confident of hosting international cricket teams in the strife-torn country and hoped neighbours India to tour soon as well.
Ashraf hopes that Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will tour Pakistan next year. The terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009 made Pakistan a no-go zone for international teams due to security issues. The attack claimed six Pakistani policemen and a van driver.
"I am looking forward to seeing the revival of international cricket in Pakistan in 2012. India till recently had reservations about touring Pakistan due to the conditions. But I would like to see the Indians respond in a positive manner to our offer. We would also like to see the Indians in Pakistan at some stage," Ashraf was quoted as saying by the Jang daily.
