Ramiz Raja Convey ‘Heartfelt Thanks’ To CA After Bilateral Series
On April 5, Australia completed their historical tour of Pakistan with a three-wicket success in the one-off T20I at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The Australians won the three-match Test series 1–0 and then grabbed the win in the first ODI well before the hosts produced a dramatic comeback victory in the next 2 games.
The efficient execution of the bilateral series has satisfied Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairperson Ramiz Raja, who has also stepped forth to praise both teams for their efforts. On the very same occasion, he praised Cricket Australia (CA) for actively participating in achieving the tour’s accomplishment.
My Heartfelt Thanks To Cricket Australia: Ramiz Raja
“The three-Test series was combative and engrossing going into the last hour of the 15th day to find a winner, while white-ball cricket confirmed the high billing and caliber of both the sides. The camaraderie and respect demonstrated by the two sides during high-pressure cricket were exemplary and a massive advertisement for our sport,” said Ramiz Raja.
“After witnessing and experiencing firsthand what this great country has to offer, I am confident the Australia players and officials will take home fond memories and become bigger advocates and goodwill ambassadors for Pakistan than before”, PCB chairman added.
“I would like to place on record my heartfelt thanks to Cricket Australia who made this series possible by sending their best available players, as well as the PCB staff who delivered an outstanding and flawless series at the backend of HBL PSL 7″, Raja concluded.
It must have been a tragedy for Pakistan and its cricket after both New Zealand Cricket (NZC) and also the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) declined to participate in a bilateral series in Pakistan the year before, due to safety concerns and bio-bubble exhaustion, accordingly.
According to this eagerly awaited series, the seventh season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) was performed exclusively in Pakistan, spanning two venues in Karachi and Lahore.
