Australia cricketer Usman Khawaja said that its very easy for players and organisations to say no to Pakistan. He also believes that the scenarios would have been different it that India would have been there instead of Pakistan.
Last week New Zealand and England cancelled their white-ball tours to Pakistan citing security concerns. New Zealand pulled out of the tour in the 11th hour.
“I feel it’s very easy for players and organisations to say no to Pakistan, because it’s Pakistan. I think the same thing would apply too, if it were Bangladesh. But nobody would say no to India, if they’re in the same situation,” Khawaja was quoted as saying by The West Australian on Thursday
“Money talks, we all know that, and that’s probably a big part of it. They keep proving time and time again through their tournaments that they’re a safe place to play cricket. I think there’s no reason why we shouldn’t go back,” added the 34-year-old.
Khawaja last played an international match during August 2019 during the Ashes in England, will have a chance to build his case for a Test recall ahead of the Ashes in the country when his side Queensland will host Tasmania for Sheffield Shield and Marsh One-Day Cup matches.
