Former England captain Michael Atherton praised the Pakistan Super League (PSL) for providing first-class security arrangements for its foreign players and ensuring the country’s security.
“It’s great to see cricket’s return to Pakistan. By now all foreign cricketers are fully aware that they are safe in Pakistan. They had a great time playing PSL matches,”.
Atherton said that after the notorious terrorist attack on Sri Lanka in 2009, the ten-year drought in Pakistan must have dealt a severe blow to Pakistan.
“I’m sure it wasn’t easy for Pakistani cricketers to play in the UAE with no crowds while also being away from home,” he said.
At the same time, Atherton also praised the perseverance and determination of Prime Minister Imran Khan, recalling that the 1992 World Champion once told him that one day he would win the election and then win the election.
