KARACHI: The deputy chairman of the ICC Imran Khwaja will witnesses the first Twenty20 between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, scheduled in Lahore on Oct 5.
The arrival of other cricket boards’ dignitaries in Lahore for the Twenty20 games might get hampered due to the possible shift of venue for next month’s International Cricket Council (ICC) Board meeting from Sydney to Dubai.
However, Imran has confirmed his attendance for the Twenty20.
Earlier this month, Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts also visited Islamabad as part of a trust-building campaign between the two countries. A cricket series is slated to be held between Pakistan and Australia in Pakistan in 2022. Roberts was also accompanied by CA’s head of security Sean Carroll.
