New Pakistan boss targets return of international action

Thirteen Pakistani players are now playing in England and the West Indies.

The Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) is waiting for a response from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on details of proposed security arrangements for the World XI tour next month.

Pakistanis cricketers in CPL including Kamran Akmal, Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Mohammad Sami, Hasan Ali, and Sohail Tanvir have been told to return in order to represent the local franchises.

The same notices went out to Mohammad Amir, who was to stay with Essex until September, Sarfraz Ahmed, who was to play five games for Yorkshire in the Natwest T20 Blast, and Fakhar Zaman, who was set to join Somerset until the end of the season.

Bigg Boss on Star Maa & Vijay captivate viewers
Bigg Boss Tamil hosted by Kamal Haasan has reached its seventh week in which seven contestants were nominated for elimination. He alleged they had driven her to attempt suicide and telecast the same to gain TRP ratings.

Pakistan are eager to organise a three-match T20 series against World XI in a bid to bring back cricket in their country post the infamous terror attacks on touring Sri Lanka side in 2009.

PCB has found itself in a fix with the World XI's visit earlier scheduled for late September, but due to the by-elections in NA-120 on September 17 due to the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif, the dates had to be moved to earlier September.

The tournament that will take place in Malaysia will include eight teams including the automatic qualifiers, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

"We will discuss this matter in the ACC meeting in Colombo on Saturday and we think that the event can be held at any other secure venue outside India and Pakistan", Najam Sethi, has stated, quoted AFP. It can't be held after September 17 because there is no time to both hold the series and also give coach Mickey Arthur time for training his team before the series against Sri Lanka starts on September 24.
