ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif wrote a letter to Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe on Thursday thanking the Zimbabwe Cricket Board for organising the series and visiting Pakistan.
Following the recent terrorist attacks in Karachi, the long sought return of international cricket seemed impossible again until Zimbabwe's Cricket took a step to overlook the risks and go ahead with the tour.

However, Zimbabwe Cricket chief Wilson Manase said in a statement to the press said “We have also experienced international isolation. But we won’t let that happen with our brother. You can’t kill the spirit of cricket."

Further PM Nawaz informed President Mugabe of Pakistan's hopes to host more international matches in the country after a successful series with Zimbabwe.
