Karachi: The PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf on Friday said the brief tour by the British Army team was a small step forward towards the revival of international cricket in the country.

Ashraf described the visit by the British team to play a couple of T20 matches against the Pakistan Army and a PCB XI as a ray of hope for future international tours.

"I am really happy to see the British Army team playing on Pakistan soil and enjoying their stay here. It is an achievement by the Pakistan Army Sports Board to invite them and will also help us in our endeavours to convince international teams to tour Pakistan again," said Ashraf.
