The doors to international cricket in Pakistan were closed after the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team. After this, Zimbabwe became the first team to visit Pakistan. He visited Pakistan for the limited overs series in 2015. Last year, Sri Lanka visited Pakistan for two five-day matches. Bangladesh were also supposed to visit Pakistan for two matches but the second Test was suspended due to Kovid-19 after one Test. During this time, Pakistan Super League domestic event was attended by Shane Watson of Australia and international giants like Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers of South Africa.

Khan said the board received positive response from the arrival of these international players. He said that many of these players went back to their countries and said that Pakistan is one of the safest places to play. He said that these are the cricketers who are associated with their respective cricket boards. There was a (different) perception of Pakistan for these international cricketers before coming here. However, Khan is not yet hopeful of resumption of cricket between India and Pakistan. Due to poor bilateral relations on Kashmir issue, the two neighboring countries only play against each other in major international tournaments like World Cup, Champions Trophy and Asia Cup.
