International cricket to return only in 'safe' and 'secure' Pak : ICC

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, Aug.29 (ANI): The International Cricket Council (ICC) has assured Pakistan that international cricket would return to the troubled nation as soon as it is safe to for the foreign teams to return there.

ICC President David Morgan said international cricket will return to Pakistan as soon as it is 'safe' and 'secure' for the game to be played there.

Morgan said resumption of international cricket in Pakistan is on top of ICC's agenda, and the apex cricket authority would not let the game suffer unduly.

"Our number-one priority is that cricket in Pakistan must not be allowed to suffer unduly and I believe this agreement is the best possible outcome for the game," The Nation quoted Morgan, as saying.

It may be recalled that the ICC had declared Pakistan an unsafe destination for foreign team in the wake of the terror attack on the visiting Sri Lanka cricket team in Lahore in March.

The ICC also shifted the 2011 World Cup matches from Pakistan after the attack in which seven Sri Lankan players were injured and six security personnel were killed. (ANI)
