New Pakistan boss targets return of worldwide action

New Pakistan boss targets return of worldwide action

Speaking after being named PCB chairman for the next three years, Najam Sethi expressed hope that next month's proposed World XI tour in Pakistan would be the first step towards the return of global cricket.

The country has since been largely starved of worldwide cricket, apart from a short visit by Zimbabwe in 2015.

Sethi, who previously served as the PCB's chairman between June 2013 and July 2014, has said he hopes worldwide teams will come back to play in Pakistan soon, but admitted he can not guarantee when that will be. "Other cricketing nations are focusing on that and we should not remain behind on that front", Miandad told worldwide media. Although, Pakistan toured India for a short series in December 2012.

The players have been asked to report to head coach at the NCA on August 22 for fitness and medical screening followed by participation in the National T20 and preparatory camp under the supervision of Pakistan team management for the World XI series in Lahore.

"We hope to bring a World XI for a three-match Twenty20 series and the next two-to-three months will bring more good news".

Meanwhile, the PCB has also initiated legal action against India for not honouring a deal under which the two countries were set to play six senior series between 2014-2023.

The players have been asked to report for a pre series fitness testing and training camp, as planned by the national team management and the National T20 tournament that starts in Multan on August 25.

However, the final call over the World XI matches is expected to be taken by the government.
