It has been 10 years since Srilanka tour to Pakistan, which also became the last international team to play in Pakistan soil. And now, Srilanka who became the part of attack in their last tour has made it possible for Pakistan to play in their home soil again. All the cricket fans of Pakistan could’t define their heartly thanksgiving to the Srilankan team for their decision.
It’s time of new year, so nothing will be as good as beginning a new start to cricket. Let us all hope this tour will bring all the positive signs to Pakistan and we can see other home series for them.
