Pakistan Cricket Board has welcomed an inivtation from The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BBCI) for a Pakistani team to play in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament this year.
Pakistan Cricket Board chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmed, said: “We feel it’s a significant and positive development. We had been in touch with the BCCI over the participation of a Pakistan team and hope that this step could lead to a revival of Indo-Pak cricketing ties.”
The tournament is contested by teams from India, Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, Sri Lanka, South Africa and England. To date, no Pakistani teams have competed. The Sialkot Stallions were supposed to compete in the competition in 2009 but the plans collapsed after the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai.
