No foreign team coming in Pak in near future: Ex-PCB boss Shaharyar Khan

He also does not see any possibility of top cricket playing nations like India, England or Australia touring Pakistan in the coming years. "The BCCI follows its government's instructions in any ties with Pakistan while the UK and Australia are part of the NATO forces so they won't be sending their teams either," he said.

Karachi: Former Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan believes that the security situation in Pakistan has only deteriorated in the last couple of years and it is unlikely that any foreign team will tour the country at this moment.

Khan, who played an instrumental role in getting Indian team to tour Pakistan for a full series in 2004 after a lull of 14-years, felt that the PCB was wrong in thinking that by organising the Pakistan Super League T20 event it will pave way for revival of international cricket in the country.

"The security situation in Pakistan has deteriorated further in the last couple of years and in my personal opinion, no country will send its team here at this moment in time," he told the daily 'Dawn' in an interview.
