PCB got the political gesture it wanted tho


although do wish PCB don't rush cricket back quickly, Pakistan won't be able to handle a proper tour/tournament yet.
one off games are easy to organise considering Pakistan promised the players in and out for the foreign players.

Success of the final likely going to make PCB think about hosting the entire competition in pakistan, especially if they feel players can be brought to play in Pakistan.

They had 10,000 security for the final. Doubt they could maintain that for a whole tournament or tour.

well they would have to if PCB are serious and desperate for cricket to return in Pakistan.
PCB were so desperate for the final this season that no matter how many bombings take place in Pakistan the final had to take place there with so much financial pressure on them to place cricket in Pakistan again.

if this is deem a success, it makes easier for the tournament to be in Pakistan again considering everyone in PCB, Investors, TV want it in pakistan and makes financial sense for the tournament to be in pakistan.

Just now some asian dude that is pundit or who ever he is just said inshallah all the games are in pakistan next year for the tournament.

Ultimately, unless the PC can convince big name players that it is safe to play in Pakistan, it doesn't matter a jot if they have 10,000 police per game.

TBH doesn't matter a jot to PCB what foreign players comes over considering some decent overseas stars will come.
plus foreign cricketer wasn't really the key priority here, which is why they didn't even care if any of them don't come to the final.
the key aspect was to get pakistan tv broadcaster back in the fold and investor to pump cricket into Pakistan cricket.
PCB were in huge crisis considering no one in the country wanted to show cricket, cricket viewership was at a low, money from tv was nonexistent and cricket was at risk from being like hockey.
essentially PCB could only get TV viewership and interest from tv broadcaster again if they somehow brought cricket back to Pakistan.
it just had to happen, failure wasn't an option for PCB.
With no india games in the horizon PCB had not nothing to entice money from the TV broadcaster and the public and tv people didn't care or bother with bilaterial games even ODI are becoming stale and declining in pakistan.

this article pretty much explain how bad cricket became in pakistan.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is facing problems in selling the television rights of its forthcoming 'home' series against Australia and New Zealand in the United Arab Emirates for a reasonable amount.

A reliable source in the board, aware of the developments, told PTI that while the PCB had kept a reserve base price between USD 7.5 to 8 million for both series, it had not received a single bid even close to the reserve price.


PCB now knows it could bribe players and players will come over.
actually quite meaningful the likes of Sammy, Malan and Jordan came over.
Attracting 2 english players is no mean feat.
Suspect decent dosh was offered to the players.

Although watching the game and the affection the players got before the game and after it was pretty pleasing to watch cricket again in pakistan irrespective of why the game took place and was a happy occasion to see it being a success.
for once you can argue the terrorist didn't win and their affects to stop the game taking place didn't work.
Suspect the T20 series between Pakistan and WI in pakistan is quite close to happening soon then.
that will be PCB next test if they really want cricket again in pakistan can they host a big international game with hotel and players staying in Pakistan.

No surprise PCB and ICC are desperate for cricket in pakistan.
should be noted Giles Clarke is pushing very hard for cricket in the country and Reg Dickason played a role in the security for the final.
anyway imran khan not happy with the final.
