Moreover, the Sydney born cleared that Australia is hopeful of having its men’s team touring Pakistan, but won’t rush into a decision as the safety and security of Australian cricketers would remain as their top priority.
“The purpose of the visit was to understand the landscape before we are faced with a key decision. We share Pakistan’s desire for the International cricket to return to their country, but we will never jeopardize the safety of our people,” said by Kevin Roberts while talking about Australia’s tour of Pakistan.
