The recently concluded T20 Cricket Series between Pakistan and West Indies had cricket enthusiasts gripped which was held in Karachi, Pakistan. The West Indies Cricket Team may have lost to a 3-0 against Pakistan in the T20 Cricket Series, but coach Stuart Law spoke highly about the security measures in Pakistan and the possible return of International Cricket to Pakistan.
The Australian Coach of the West Indies Cricket team, Stuart Law, appreciated the high-security measures by Pakistan for the T20 Cricket Series that closed curtains on Tuesday. He spoke highly about the detailed arrangements and security measures taken by Pakistan Government to host a successful T20 Series.
Law Impressed By T20 Cricket Series Arrangements
Security has been an issue for Pakistan Cricket and one of the main concerns voiced by foreign cricket teams. Over the last 9 years, ever since the attack on the Sri Lankan Cricket team bus in Lahore, the concerns have been raised by almost every foreign team. The current T20 Series was the first major international cricket series held in Pakistan after 9 years.
“The security has been outstanding, we haven’t seen any issues, any incidences and anything that may arose was communicated to us very well”: stuart Law
Last year, when the Pakistan Super League was organised in Lahore, countries like England and Australia backed out raising security concerns. However, the finals were held in Karachi and Pakistan deployed almost eight-thousand security officials to give the foreign teams effective security.
Will the West Indies T20 Series Open Stadiums to International Cricket?
With such high-security measures that impressed the West Indies team, it may seem like more foreign cricket teams may lose their concerns. The reservations about security issues in Pakistan may start fading. The captain of the Pakistani Cricket team, Sarfraz Ahmed, said that it’s time foreign teams stop raising concerns about security as Pakistan is fully capable of hosting international cricket events. The victory against West Indies has pegged Pakistan’s position much higher in the T20 world cricket rankings.
