Among Cheers and Posters, Pakistan Cricket Fans Welcome Australia

The time when cricket was exiled, was perhaps the most difficult for Pakistan cricket fans. The stadiums were empty and Pakistan was forced to take place on foreign lands. It was the darkest period of time for the game in the homeland. 

Then, in the year 2017, a glimmer of hope originated, when PCB placed the first stepping stone of bringing back the game in the country, Gradually international cricket began to return and the stadiums started filling in.

As the foreign countries began to resume play, fans wondered if the top teams will ever step foot on Pakistani grounds or will they be left longing for such a thing to happen. But on November 8, 2021, Cricket Australia (CA) confirmed a tour of their men’s side which would happen in March-April. 

No one could believe it until a full-strength Australian Test team landed on Pakistani soil on 27th February to mark the beginning of a historic tour. It was a dream that was finally coming true.
