International Cricketers instructed not to visit KP and Balochistan

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is optimistic that international cricket will return to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, although foreign cricketers have been told by their respective nations not to visit these places.

While talking to the media in Peshawar, PCB CEO Faisal Hasnain said they wanted to organise matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in KP but, for some reason, they couldn’t.

“PCB is trying to restore international cricket in the province; we were planning to organise a big event that could not happen due to some reasons,” Faisal said.

“Foreign players are not allowed to travel to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan by their countries.” “They are asked to stay cautious,” he added.

In a ceremony, the Hayatabad Cricket Stadium was handed over to the PCB, which will pave the way for talent in the province.

“Most of the players in the Pakistan team are from KP, which shows the presence of immense talent here.” “PCB’s academy will also continue to run on the premises of Arbab Niaz Stadium, and we will work together with the Directorate of Sports of KP to promote cricket,” he added.

“With the construction of Hayatabad Stadium and Arbab Niaz Stadium, other international matches, including PSL, can be easily held in Peshawar, and PCB supervision work will be completed in both stadiums,” he concluded.
