Terrorism may have detrimental affect on cricket in Pakistan: Younis Khan
Lahore, Mar.5 (ANI): Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan has expressed fears that the future of cricket in Pakistan may fall into the hands of terrorists, and attacks like Lahore may have a detrimental affect on the game.
Khan said the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore would only add to the woes of the game in the country which was already a facing difficult situation due to a series of tour cancellations by foreign teams.
He said the extended boycott by international cricket community could lead to decline in interest and participation in cricket among Pakistan's youth.
"Maybe in the future we will be alone as a cricketing nation and that would be very sad, especially for the youngsters. When I was a boy, I loved watching Imran Khan, Javed Miandad and Wasim Akram playing against great teams from overseas. It is because of them, seeing them play , I also started playing the game. But what if no one comes to Pakistan? How will the youngsters know about the game? What will they do?," The News quoted Khan, as saying.
Khan also appealed to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to help Pakistan to come out of this difficult situation, and urge foreign teams to visit the country.
"It would be very easy right now for the ICC and the bosses to say there will be no cricket in Pakistan. But the future will not be good if cricket is taken away from my country," he said. (ANI)
