Pakistan head coach Saqlain Mushtaq has thanked Australia for touring the nation for a historic series. Australia are due to arrive in Pakistan on Feb. 27 after 24 years to play three test matches, three ODIs and a one-off Twenty20.
”I want to thank Australia too that they are coming to Pakistan after 24 years, I am sure players and fans are also excited that they are going to witness a very good series. The whole Pakistan is with cricket and everyone wants the teams to come and play here. We welcome the whole world with open hearts,” Mushtaq told reporters on Thursday.
The tour starts in Rawalpindi on March 4 with the first test, followed by test matches in Karachi and Lahore. The ODIs and a Twenty20 will be played at Rawalpindi. Pakistan test players started a training camp in Karachi under the supervision of Mushtaq and batting coach Mohammad Yousuf before the camp will be shifted to Rawalpindi later this month.
