After acknowledging Pakistan’s importance from tourism point of view by world’s leading magazines, West Indies’ prolific opener Chris Gayle, on Thursday (Dec 9) named Pakistan as one of the safest places in the world today after Test cricket returned to the country with the recent tour of Sri Lanka.
“Pakistan is one of the safest places right now in the world. They say you will get presidential security so you are in good hands. I mean we are in good hands too in Bangladesh, right?” Gayle said. The opener’s comments come at a point when Bangladesh officials are mulling over the option for touring the country for a Test series.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for a week to finalise their decision regarding the upcoming tour of Pakistan. According to sources, the BCB wants to have internal discussions regarding Pakistan’s proposal of playing the Test series first in their scheduled tour.
Earlier, while talking to media on Wednesday evening, the BCB President Nazmul Hasan had originally claimed that the final decision regarding the tour would be announced on Thursday.
