Pakistans board calls for a return home for games

PAKISTAN cricket bosses are desperate to once again host internationals in their own country.

Its "home" matches have been played at venues ranging from the United Arab Emirates to England since gunmen attacked the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009, leaving eight people dead and wounding seven Sri Lankan players and an assistant coach.

The present multi-format series against Australia is being played in the UAE, where the Aussies followed a victory in the sole T20 match with an easy 93-run victory in the first one-dayer in Sharjah, Steve Smith (pictured) starring with 101 off 118 balls.

Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shahryar Khan has visited Bangladesh this week, pleading for that country to play matches in Pakistan. "Send your schoolboys to us, and of course your women. We want to start at every level with Bangladesh," Khan said.
