As Test cricket returned to Pakistan, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani has stated that at present "India is a far greater security risk than Pakistan".
"We have proved that Pakistan is safe, if someone isn't coming then they should prove that it's unsafe. At this time, India is a far greater security risk than Pakistan," Mani said.
"No one should now doubt security arrangements in Pakistan after successful Sri Lanka Test series. This is a turning point for revival of Test cricket in Pakistan. Media and fans played an important role in portraying positive image of Pakistan worldwide," Mani added.
The PCB chairman further urged Bangladesh - who are due to arrive in January for three T20Is and two Tests - and other cricketing nations to visit Pakistan.
"We're in talks with Bangladesh board. Not only Bangladesh, all the teams should have no doubt that PCB will host its home series in Pakistan only," Mani said.
"I'm hopeful that Bangladesh will tour Pakistan because there's no reason of not touring. If Sri Lanka can tour Pakistan than why not others," he added.
The comment from the PCB chairman comes at a time when India have been hit by massive anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests.
