Legendary batsman Javed Miandad Wednesday said Sri Lankan team’s tour to Lahore for the last Twenty20 gives a clear message to the whole world that Pakistan has come-out victorious from the menace of terrorism as international cricket has revived in the country.
Pakistan will play three T20s against Sri Lanka with the first and second to be played on Thursday and Friday, respectively at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. The final T20 will be staged at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Sunday (October 29).
Talking to APP, Miandad said Sri Lanka’s tour to Pakistan which had been a victim of terrorism in 2009 in Lahore, is a great achievement for Pakistan cricket.
“The Gaddafi Stadium was seen jam-packed in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final and the Independence Cup matches between World XI and Pakistan which shows our nation was starved for international cricket for a long time,” he said.
