PCB to submit expression of interest in hosting six events from 2024 to 2031


Pakistan Cricket Board is eager to host six ICC events falling between the period of 2024 to 2031.


The country last hosted major world tournaments in 1996 in the form of World Cup which was won by Sri Lanka.

The PCB remains hopeful that it will earn hosting rights of atleast one event which will be a big thing for Pakistan which staged last event in 1996” PCB said in a latest statement according to Cricbuzz.
