Karachi: Australia’s left-handed batsman Usman Khawaja feels that his country’s cricket team should tour Pakistan next year.
The five-time world champion last toured Pakistan in 1998. Khwaja, 34, said there was no reason for kangaroos not to visit the country.
He said, ‘The responsibility of the tour of Pakistan is on Australia. I think Australia should visit Pakistan 100 per cent,” Khawaja said while talking to Krikwick.
“I think Pakistan has shown enough in the last four or five years that the security here is very good, the players are extremely comfortable coming here for the PSL, and so I think this is an opportunity for Australia. I have heard that England is also touring Pakistan this year. It will be good for cricket. Pakistan has played a lot of cricket in Dubai, now they need to play at home.
It should be noted that Australia is scheduled to tour Pakistan in February of 2022 for two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is.
Remember, Khawaja is in Abu Dhabi and will represent Islamabad United in the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021.
