Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting believes that the senior national Australia side might visit Pakistan in the next five years to play cricket. International cricket has recently seen its rebirth in Pakistan, especially after having a successful fifth edition of the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) until now.
Notably, international cricket had been absent from Pakistan corridors as the country was heavily marred with terrorism. The Sri Lankan team in Pakistan faced a terror attack in the year 2009 and from thereon, international teams refused to visit the sub-continent nation.
Since then, Pakistan had to play all its home games in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Their Premier T20 franchise cricket tournament, the PSL wasn’t entirely played in the nation.
However, international cricket reached Pakistan this year with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have had successful tours already. For the first time in PSL history, the entire competition is being organized solely in Pakistan.
This has created a sense of belief in spectators and fans that Pakistan is now sufficient—to host big cricketing games.

Asia Cup Venue To Shift Confirms PCB Chief Ehsan Mani
Ending all the speculations surrounding the hosting of the Asia Cup 2020, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that the tournament will be held at a neutral venue.
Pakistan did have the hosting rights for the competition but they had to agree to change the venue due to India’s stand.
PCB chief Ehsan Mani has admitted that since India’s non-participation wouldn’t enable the Asian Cricket Council (ACC), to generate as many funds as with the Men in Blue, the event will be held at a neutral venue to ensure all of the teams in the continent participate.
