Cricket world should come forward to support Pak: Misbah
Elated by the successful completion of their first home series in over six years, Pakistan’s Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq said <g data-gr-id="18">rest</g> of the cricket-playing world should also come forward to support his country now.
The third and final one-dayer between Pakistan and Zimbabwe was abandoned last night at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore due to a dust storm and heavy rains. But it was yet another heavy turnout of spectators. “I think the way the people have come and supported the Pakistan Cricket Board, the team and cricket throughout this series it is a strong enough message for the rest of the cricket world to give us more support now to have regular international matches in Pakistan,” Misbah told PTI.
“Even I have been surprised and moved by the passion shown by the cricket fans to give a clear message to the outside world that no matter what the circumstances they love the game and want to
watch teams play in Pakistan,” he said.
Misbah urged the Asian teams including Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India to offer more support to the PCB to have international matches at home. “I think Pakistan cricket has shown it has <g data-gr-id="16">indomitable</g> spirit and I would love to see the Asian teams playing in Pakistan, It would be a dream come true for me,” the senior batsman said.
