PCB Chair Seeks Prime Minister's Help In Bringing Int'l Cricket Back To Pakistan
Pakistan Cricket Board interim Chair Najam Sethi has sought the help of PM Nawaz Sharif "as he tries to revive international cricket in the troubled country after a hiatus of nearly four years," according to the AFP. Pakistan "has not hosted any international cricket since a deadly militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in March 2009 in Lahore." Pakistan "twice tried to arrange limited-overs series against Bangladesh last year." Sethi said that "he has sought Sharif’s help." Sethi: "We have requested the prime minister to help us in this regard and we are going to meet him very soon" (AFP, 12/16).
