The meeting is being held to boost the morale of national team


News Desk September 22, 2021

The Pakistan cricket team arrived on Wednesday at the Prime Minister's House to meet PM Imran Khan ahead of the T20 World Cup scheduled to take in October-November this year.

The meeting with the premier is an attempt to boost the morale of the cricket team ahead of the world cup. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Ramiz Raja, will also reportedly attend the meeting.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, a brilliant cricketer during his career, led Pakistan's 'cornered tigers' to victory in the 1992 ICC Cricket World Cup, the country's only world cup triumph.

The national team has also won a T20 world cup and the Champion's Trophy, defeating arch-rival India in the finals.

The meeting between the cricket squad and the premier came days after the cricket teams of New Zealand and England cancelled their tours of Pakistan.

The NZ team had left their tour hours before the start of the first ODI match in Rawalpindi whereas the England Cricket Board had called off the tour weeks before it began.
