Former West Indies pace bowling great Michael Holding is in Pakistan’s megacity Karachi recently, where he was hosted by ex-Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi. Holding shrugged off all apprehensions regarding security concerns in the country and confirmed Sri Lanka’s tour to Pakistan was encouraging news.
“If I had any apprehension or fear of security, I wouldn’t have come to Pakistan. I have no problem here. It is good and encouraging news that the Sri Lankans are here in Pakistan to play international matches,” the Caribbean legend said.
He also highlighted the fact that Pakistan needed to get international cricket back on its shores as soon as possible as it was unjust to the fans residing in the country.
“It’s useful to have security precautions which obviously is every country’s priority and Pakistan is not any different, but Pakistan should not be isolated from the game just because of something that happened ten years ago,” he emphasized.
