Indian Players To Play Cricket On Pakistani Soil For The First Time Since 2008?

After 2008 Asia Cup, we might see Indians play on Pakistani soil soon. No, no Indian cricket team is not travelling across to play a match against Pakistan team.

But, the Indian players may take part in the World Series.

The ICC has confirmed that a World XI will be sent to face Pakistan XI. There are bound to be some players in World XI like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and others.

Plans for the full resumption of international cricket in Pakistan moved forward when the sport’s global governing body said it wanted to send a World XI to the country later this year.

With the exception of Zimbabwe’s tour two years ago, Pakistan has had to play all of their ‘home’ matches outside of the country since a 2009 terror attack on Sri Lanka’s team bus in Lahore.

After Pakistan’s 180 run victory over India in this year Champions Trophy Final at The Oval, coach Mickey Arthur said he hoped the match against World XI will go ahead.

It will be interesting to see whether Indian government and BCCI will agree with sending Indian players to Pakistan or not.
