The fans and the players were equally ecstatic as the Test cricket finally returned to Pakistan after a decade-long wait. The Test cricket left the country with the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in March 2009 and it is the same team that brought back the longest format of the game to Pakistan.
Shoaib Malik, the Pakistani all-rounder was craving to be at the ground as the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka’s 1st Test Day 1 was underway. Shoaib showed his excitement at Twitter as he wished to be at the ground during the 1st Test match.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) deserves the credit for bringing the Test cricket back to Pakistan. Moreover, the Sri Lankan cricket board also deserves praise for keeping their trust in Pakistan and sending their team for the first-ever Test series in Pakistan since March 2009.
