  • Amir’s stint with Essex has been cut short

Bringing touring sides back to Pakistan is an aim of the country's cricket governing body's new chairman - but he urged for patience.

Also, the players in English country, including pacer Mohammad Amir, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, prolific batsman Fakhar Zaman, have received recall notices from the cricket board to end commitments with their respective franchises.

No worldwide cricket team barring Zimbabwe has toured Pakistan ever since the Sri Lankan team bus was attacked by terrorists near the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore in 2009.

Diplomatic tensions between the two nations have prevented the neighbours from playing a bilateral series since 2007, apart from Pakistan's tour to India in 2012-2013 when they played a short limited-overs series.

The same year, Pakistan athletes were expelled from a hockey league following protests. It can't be held after September 17 because there is no time to both hold the series and also give coach Mickey Arthur time for training his team before the series against Sri Lanka starts on September 24.

Sethi, who previously served as the PCB's chairman between June 2013 and July 2014, has said he hopes global teams will come back to play in Pakistan soon, but admitted he can not guarantee when that will be. "Other cricketing nations are focusing on that and we should not remain behind on that front", Miandad told global media.

"We hope to bring a World XI for a three-match Twenty20 series and the next two-to-three months will bring more good news".

ESPN said that Pakistan are also set to travel to the UAE from September 21 for a full series against Sri Lanka.

However, the final call over the World XI matches is expected to be taken by the government.

Their captain Mahela Jayawardene was among the injured players.
