Holding a full-fledged tour including Sri Lanka, Pakistan has taken positive steps in their quest of returning the glory of International stadiums of the country. However, major teams are yet to visit the country. In this regard, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani has also discussed the prospects of playing Tests of ICC World Test Championship at home.
Particularly, the games against arch-rivals India came under discussion as both nations stay far away from resuming their cricketing ties as a result of a hostile situation at the border. Nevertheless, the 74-year old is confident of playing India at a neutral venue as he understands the protocols of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Sharing his views on playing the men in blue in the global red-ball competition, Mani said, “I think they will do the same in the Test Championship as they did in World Cup. They didn’t want to play with us, but they had to play. I know that the International cricket community will make India pay if it keeps on taking choices under political pressure and interference.”
