The Australian cricket team is scheduled to tour Pakistan in 2022. Meanwhile, Cricket Australia (CA) chief executive Kevin Roberts said that even then security concerns would remain and he would not jeopardize the safety of the players. During the March 2009 tour of Sri Lankan team, there was a terrorist attack in Lahore in which six players were injured. Six Pakistani policemen and two civilians were killed in it. Most international teams have not toured Pakistan since this attack.
Roberts said that we want the return of international cricket in Pakistan but at the same time he said that we will not put our people in danger.
A high-level team of Australia cricket has toured Pakistan for over a decade. The Australian team has not played there since 1998 on the advice of the government but according to the schedule, the tour to Pakistan is scheduled to be held in 2022. Roberts said he wanted to see the ground situation himself, so went to Pakistan. Roberts said that we want to return to international cricket in Pakistan but at the same time he said that we will not put our people in danger. He said that the purpose of this visit was to see his preparation and planning for security. Then for the tour to be held in two years, we will also start to express our hopes for the safety of the players and support staff. So far things are moving in the right direction.
