It’s beautiful seeing international cricket in Pakistan



Last Updated on 7 years by Charbel Coorey

Tonight, it’s not only about Pakistan’s opportunity to clean sweep the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka.
Tonight, it’s not only about Pakistan’s chance to move within one ranking point of first placed New Zealand.
Tonight, it’s not only about cricket.
Tonight is about new hope.
International Cricket returns to Pakistan in the third T20I v Sri Lanka, and it’s so amazing to see.
Just imagining all the passionate Pakistan fans flocking the gates at the Lahore Cricket Stadium to catch a glimpse of their heroes who have made them so proud is so beautiful.
Cricket brings us all together.
These fans would have spent hours watching their heroes on television doing amazing things over the last couple of years
Reaching no. 1 in the Test rankings, winning the Champions Trophy, and achieving 9 straight ODI wins.
From seeing their stars on television to watching them in the flesh. It’s a great change. It’s a beautiful night in the making.
What this occasion represents is hope. Hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel for Pakistan fans, who are so incredibly deprived of what I, as an Australian, can often take for granted. The chance to come together as one and celebrate cricket in Pakistan. The chance to cheer on their beloved heroes. The chance to escape from the challenges of everyday life, enjoying something they love.
For me, it’s especially about the young kids, wanting to become the next Mohammad Amir or Hasan Ali. Seeing their stars in real life will continue to drive that passion in their hearts for the game of cricket, and for their country, Pakistan. How brilliant is that.
I’m incredibly looking forward to seeing a full crowd in Lahore, and am hoping that this is the beginning of more cricket in Pakistan. More hope. A getaway from the challenges of everyday life, thanks to a beautiful sport that brings us all together.
Good luck to Pakistan, from an Australian.
