Pakistan eager to host 2014 Twenty20

Pakistan is building up their hopes to host international cricket like World Cup within next five year. They deprived of to host Champions trophy 2008 for the security reason and also erased out their name form the list of co-host next World Championship, will be held in 2011. Bangladesh will organize the opening ceremony and other co-hosts re India and Sri Lanka. Pakistan is visiting as a guest in South of Champions Trophy instead of responsible host because of the increment terrorist attack. Most meaningful attack was on the cricket team of Sri Lankan. The recent news makes me happy that they are interested to host twenty20 WC in 2014.

"We are interested in making a bid for the tournament," Ijaz Butt, the PCB chairman, told Cricinfo. "It is very early right now but we are interested. Hopefully the situation will have improved and stabilised in the country by then."

I agree with the PCB Chairman. First they should have to improve the present situation and must have to confirm that the players will be fearless in everywhere ground, on the way and living place. Pakistan is one of the counties where cent percent of people like cricket after India. Became an organizer is the vital rights, at the same time they have to take care in every area.

India-Pakistan cricket match may happen in neutral venue

It can tell surely that the cricket tournament between India and Pakistan is the most exciting and attractive cricket events ever. The cricket beloved people all over the world eagerly wait to watch this match. It is long time, India and Pakistan did not play any single match after the terrorist attack in Mumbai. Even, India canceled their tour of Pakistan. In the recent news I found that PCB is trying to convince BCCI to attend a tour match in neutral venue.


"The PCB is very keen to push this idea forward as a series against India will improve its financial health considerably and also allow it to meet its commitments with the broadcasters who are paying a lot of money for the television rights of Pakistan cricket," one source said.

No doubt that it will be big opportunity to them who supports both the countries and enjoy most the rivalry match. We all know that the Pakistani players, who signed with Indian premier league franchise, did not attend on the second season that held at the outside of India. I hope, both countries will be agreed with the same point for the cricket beloved people.
