The Pakistani team has millions of fans across the globe, but the constant threat of terrorism looming has deprived the nation of quality international cricket for nearly 7 years. There was a bilateral series in Pakistan when Zimbabwe toured the nation, but since then, there has been absolutely no progress. In the meantime, Pakistan has played its “home” games in UAE.

In the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) in UAE, West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell was quizzed about his willingness to play the event in Pakistan. He said that he would be ready to play in Pakistan, but would be very reluctant. “Based on what I have heard and stuff you know, I mean, I am going to be scared obviously,” Russell said. “But, for some reason, I would go to Pakistan. But listen, I am going to be scared. That’s the thing.”

“It is like me going to Iraq based on what I have heard about Iraq. You are going to have nice places in Iraq. You are going to have nice places in Pakistan. I’ve seen pictures, beautiful places, beautiful people. But it is about what is surrounding them,” Russell said. A lot of crime going on in Jamaica. I’m from Jamaica. I’m going to tell, Jamaica is the most beautiful place in the world. You are going to say, “No, but, they are shooting people.” I will say, no, no. Don’t worry. So it is going to be similar to going to Pakistan. So if I have to go, I’ll go. But if I don’t have to, I don’t mind.”
