Cricket matches for the national team in the United States
After the cash-rich Indian Premier League, it is the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) which is now exploring the possibility of organizing cricket matches for the national team in the United States.
With teams refusing to tour the troubled country due to security concerns, Pakistan has become completely isolated as a cricketing nation.
Pakistan’s problems were further compounded when the International Cricket Council moved the nation’s share of 2011 World Cup matches to co-host countries India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh following last year’s terrorist attack on the visiting Lankan team.
Since then, Pakistan has been hosting international teams at neutral venues.
