LAHORE: Former captain Shahid Afridi has urged the Pakistan Cricket Board to expand international cricket beyond Lahore, to Karachi and other cities across the country.
Addressing a media event here on Monday, the all-rounder said it is time for Karachi and other cities to host international matches.
“PCB should go beyond Lahore and try to organise international matches in Karachi and other cities, so that the world can know all of Pakistan is safe,” said Afridi.
“The purpose should be to show the world that not just Lahore, but all of Pakistan is safe,” he continued.
Afridi was in Lahore to inaugurate a school as part of a project by his charity Shahid Afridi Foundation.
Discussing his plans for the development of the country, he said he wants to give back to the society and make health and education his priority areas.
“My people have given me so much love over the past 20 years, now it’s time for me to give back,” he said.
