Most international teams refused to visit Pakistan after this attack. Cricket Australia’s high-level squad toured Pakistan for over a decade and Robert’s returned on Thursday. The Australian team has not played there since 1998 on the advice of the government, but according to the schedule, Pakistan is scheduled to tour in 2022. Roberts told Melbourne’s SEN Radio that he himself wanted to see the ground situation. Roberts said that we want the return of international cricket in Pakistan, but we will not endanger the lives of our people.
Let us tell you that the Pakistan Cricket Board wants international cricket to come back. For this, the Sri Lankan team is also going to visit Pakistan. Although the news came that the tour has been canceled, but the Sri Lankan Defense Ministry has given the green signal to the team to go there after investigation. Although many Sri Lankan players refused to go there for this tour, a team team was selected and now the team will go there.
