The ICC CEO Manu Sawhney is set to visit Pakistan next week to discuss the future of cricket in the country with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sawhney will hold the talks with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Pakistan Government regarding the venues for the future events in Pakistan.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) source told ANI, “ICC CEO Manu Sawhney will be visiting Pakistan later this month to hold talks with PCB and discussing venues for the future ICC events. He will also be meeting government officials.”

International cricket is returning to Pakistan after a decade. Sri Lanka played a full series in Pakistan, including two Test matches. Now, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has agreed to play a complete series in Pakistan in three phases.

Bangladesh will play three T20Is, one ODI and two Test matches in the country. Earlier, the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) had told the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that they would play one T20I series.

After a meeting held between the PCB and BCB bosses in Dubai, it has been decided that Bangladesh will play all three formats of cricket in Pakistan.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) cleared Pakistan for International cricket back in 2017, when it sent an ICC XI to play three T20-Internationals in Lahore.

The visit of the ICC CEO to Pakistan is to make sure that Pakistan chooses safe enough venues for the upcoming events in the country.
