Australia is Still Worried About Security During the Pakistan Tour 2022

After 24 long years, the Australian cricket team is scheduled to tour Pakistan in March 2022. However, the Australian cricketers are suffering from nervousness with this pre-arranged tour. Australia is worried about security during the tour of Pakistan 2022.

According to the schedule, the Australian cricket team will play three Tests and one ODI and one T20 in Pakistan. However, according to some, there are fears at the last minute about whether the Australian cricket team will tour Pakistan.

The Australian daily Sydney Morning Herald reported that Australian cricketers had expressed concern over the visit to Pakistan a month ago due to the rise in terrorist attacks in the Asian country. The last time Pakistan visited Australia was in 1998.

“We are all concerned about the security situation,” the source said, citing a source close to the Australian team, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

Meanwhile, Australia’s chief selector George Bailey has said that strict security measures are being taken ahead of the tour. “Strict security measures are being taken in Pakistan,” he said.

Australia’s chief selector said: “I believe the board is still reviewing some of the details of this tour. Whenever we get the green signal about the tour, we will work with the squad. I am logically in the tour truck. ‘

Cricket Australia (CA) has recently requested the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to hold all the matches of the series in one venue due to security concerns. However, the PCB did not have that interest in Australia. They will host tour matches at all three venues.

The Australian cricket team has not toured Pakistan since 1998 due to security concerns. Instead, Pakistan hosted a home series in the United Arab Emirates. Although he wanted to visit the country after a long time, the fear has re-emerged.

Various countries have been refusing to visit Pakistan since the 2009 militant attack on a bus carrying the Sri Lankan cricket team. Although some teams have visited Pakistan in recent years. However, New Zealand Cricket returned to Pakistan last September after canceling the tour an hour before the start of the series. Shortly afterwards, England decided not to visit Pakistan.
