Cricket: Afghanistan safer than Pakistan for MCC
LONDON: Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) are contemplating a tour of Afghanistan indicating that a visit to the war-torn nation was more likely than a trip to neighbouring Pakistan, according to the club’s president.
MCC, has played its part in supporting Afghan cricket by helping provide pitches in the capital Kabul, organising fixtures against the national side and coaching players.
“I’m going to Afghanistan to look at Kabul and the cricket pitches we have put in,” MCC President Phillip Hodson told BBC. “Then I will go to Lahore as a private citizen. I think there’s much more chance of taking a team to Afghanistan than there is to Pakistan. I think we could do something in Afghanistan and I don’t think it will be long away.”
