Zimbabwe took the initiative to give a helping hand in reincarnation of cricket in Pakistan. Not only did they took a step forward by playing a short series in the country, but also positioned an example for other nations to ponder upon their imposed sanctions on visiting Pakistan following a terrorist attack that struck Team Sri Lanka in 2009.

Cricket – arguably the most loved sport in Pakistan – returned to the country after a long hiatus. Subsequently, the team made sure that the fans are not left disheartened, as they staged a dominating performance against Zimbabwe by emerging undefeated throughout the series, which comprised of 2 T20Is and 3 ODIs.

This has paved the way for a bright ray of hope for Pakistan cricket, and that more nations (especiallu the Test-playing ones) should come forward in support, insists Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq.

“This gives a clear-cut message to everyone throughout the world – you can’t just separate the Pakistani nation from cricket,” the 41-year-old told NDTV Sports. “We still love this game – even after six years, the passion is still there. The stadium is jam-packed.

“Every nation, especially the cricket playing-nations should come to Pakistan and help Pakistan out.”
