Exactly two years after the terrorist attack on Sri Lankan players made Pakistan a no-go zone for foreign teams, PCB is hoping that international cricket would return to the country with the Lankans and Zimbabwe showing interest in coming for tours.

"One thing is clear if international cricket is to return to Pakistan later this year it will be an Asian or African cricket board that will have to support us," an official of the cricket board said.

He said Pakistan was optimistic about the return of international cricket due to the positive signals from some countries but admitted that the end of the day it would all depend on what the security situation is in the country at that time.
