London: Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) will be sending a team led by former Sri Lanka captain and current MCC president Kumar Sangakkara on a tour to Pakistan in 2020. It is yet to be specified what format will be used but the MCC said that all matches will be played at Aitchison College in Lahore.

“It is hugely important to support cricket in countries such as Pakistan, and the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) has done a tremendous job in rebuilding the international cricketing landscape since the tragic events of 2009,” Sangakkara was quoted as saying in the MCC’s statement.

International cricket tours of Pakistan came to a standstill after the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in March 2009. Sangakkara himself was captain of the team and he said that he is looking forward to being part of the trip. (IANS)
