Only PCB can convince other nations: Dave Richardson

Islamabad:

A top official of the International Cricket Council says the game's governing body is not in a position to convince cricketing nations to resume playing in Pakistan.

Chief executive David Richardson also said that ICC's role is limited when it comes to bilateral tours, and that it is up to the Pakistan Cricket Board to rebuild the confidence of cricketing countries.

Richardson says "security is not something that is taken lightly by anybody and making a decision as to whether it's safe or not involves a serious assessment of the risk ... and it's up to the member countries to decide."

Pakistan has not hosted any major test playing nation since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka team bus that killed six police officials and a van driver in Lahore.
