“I want to sit down with my counterpart at the BCCI and see if I can improve that relationship. But the complications go far beyond cricket and will require changes in thinking,” Khan was quoted as saying by the International Cricket Council (ICC) website.

“I’d like to see Pakistan players welcomed into the IPL.That would be a big step,” he added.

Khan will also attempt to convince Australia to play some games of their upcoming tour in the country. “I need to sit down with other boards and ask them: where are the gaps in our plans that worry you?” he said. “What can we do to assure you? What do we need to persuade you to come back? I want to hear what concerns they have and find a way of meeting them.

“We have international stadiums. We have a great passion for the game. If we can get more foreign players coming to Pakistan more often, hopefully we can normalise playing in the country again.”

International cricket has started to return to Pakistan, with a World XI and the West Indies playing T20I series in the country in recent years. The Pakistan Super League has also seen games played in the country, and the number of PSL games played at home is only set to increase.

“As things stand, there will be eight games in the next PSL played in Pakistan. We hope the number of foreign players coming to Pakistan will gradually increase and they will pass on their positive experiences to their team-mates.”

w.r.t this nation, shamelessness has no ends.....

 

On one side ,does harm to India in what ever aspect it might be  whether it is  in cricket like MOU etc etc,   or be in national security . And immediately after that  begs for Indian favour   in cricket related matters. And this cycle goes on.

I don’t see anything wrong with what he said from the article. Just diplomatic stuff by an official which is alright.

 

Better than the usual false bravado and feeling of self entitlement. 

 

However  expect the follow up to this sensible talk be statements like Indians are jerks and have small hearts or some other bridge burning crap which is the norm.

You can say all the right things but as he himself acknowledges complications are beyond cricket where i dont see him finding much success. 

The conversation he needs to have is with his government.  But even the 'government' can't do jack until the country gets out from under the boots of its military mafia.

IPL without Number 1 T20 team i slike daal without tadka

That ranking is a result of playing a shitton of games against faltu teams that too in crappy UAE.  To be honest, which "top" pakistani players are really world class in T20?  Their batting is **** and all depends on tukkeybaaz Zaman.  Rest aren't top shelf batters by any stretch.  It says a lot when Shoaib Malik who debuted last millenium is considered your best T20 batsman.  Even on the bowling front, Abbas is a test specialist.  Rest aren't anything spectacular.  There are no Rabadas, Dale Steyns, ABDV or even Rashid Khans who are missing from the IPL.

Everything bad about Pakistan you guys have been saying on this thread might be true but one thing is sure, Pakistanis in general have a better upbringing, just look at the difference in the language used for Pakistan in this forum and for Indians in Pakpassion. At least they don't use low class language for Indians in that forum.

I have never said anything bad about any Pakistani ever or on this forum.

 

Please don't bring that Pakpassion forum here. Those moderators are thugs. That forum is like a dictatorship and dont want opposing views. They drop a ban if they don't like the viewpoint.

 

This is a very democratic forum. I have so many disagreements but by and large I am still tolerated(not liked). Freedom of speech is the first criteria in a forum and that green forum fails miserably.

Because they earn from their forum . Besides the hatred they show on their forum is not any different.

They as a society dont begin to understand freedom of expression.

This forum doesn't have un-employed mods sitting around editing posts to present a one-eyed view.  Its more laissez faire here.
