Eight years ago Pakistan lost international cricket in Lahore, after eight years Pakistan will regain international cricket from the same city. Our cricket has lost a lot, we paid for more than we deserved, we lost our dignity, our name, our integrity but we never surrendered. We hoped and now after eight long years, there are smiles on faces of Pakistanis. Let’s appreciate the effort of PCB Chairman Najam Sethi and each and every international player who despite the doubts and uncertainties is bold enough to come, play in Pakistan and revive the game.
