Test cricket finally returned to Pakistan when Sri Lanka agreed to tour the country for a two-match series on December 11, 2019. Undoubtedly, this was one of the highlights for Pakistan cricket in the last year.
The Pakistan Cricket Board is now trying their level best to convince the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to ensure the flow of cricket in the country is not hindered. However, the BCB and PCB haven't come to terms yet but PCB won't leave any stone unturned in their efforts.
Amidst all the buzz going around between the two boards, discarded opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad has urged Bangladesh to tour their “safe” country. In a statement he said; “For me, Pakistan is a safe country. Our forces are doing whatever it takes to ensure that international cricket comes back home, providing presidential-level security to the players,”.
He further added; “Sri Lanka just came and the tour was really successful. It is totally Bangladesh cricket’s decision, whatever they feel, they should do it. But if you ask me personally, I would have really enjoyed going to Pakistan, enjoy the beautiful wickets, the hospitality and food there. So for me, it is a perfect place for going and playing cricket.”
While mentioning the hospitality, food and other “safety” measures of his country, the 28-year old took a dig on India by saying “our tea is fantastic”.

After this statement, Twitterati were quick to respond with jibes. Here are some worth mentioning tweets;
