Former Australian cricketer David Boon, who is currently serving as the match referee for Sri Lanka’s tour of Pakistan, has backed the revival of international cricket in the country. Boon claimed getting Pakistan back in the cricket mainstream in terms of hosting home series within its country, is good for the game.
He also remarked that it was great to be back in Pakistan, having previously toured the South Asian nation in 1987, 1988 and 1994. He lamented the absence of international cricket in Pakistan owing to various reasons beyond the control of the administration.
“It is good to be back. There have been a lot of unfortunate issues, which have been out of control of many people, here in the last ten years or so. Playing cricket back in Pakistan is only good for the game, and good for the people of Pakistan who follow cricket,” Boon said.
