Despite Bangladesh cancellation, Pakistan hopeful of international cricket return

Updated 4 January 2013, 8:34 AEDT

Pakistan's exile from international cricket is entering a fifth year, after Bangladesh cancelled a proposed tour for the second time, citing security concerns.

But there's growing momentum for Pakistan to be welcomed back into the world cricket fold.

It will be four years in March since gunmen attacked the Sri Lankan tour bus in Lahore, after which Pakistan cricket was ostracised, but with the Bangladesh tour stalling, the hope now is that of all teams, India, might break the drought.

Presenter: Richard Ewart

Speakers: Sanath Jayasuriya, former Sri Lanka test captain; Alvin Kalicharran, former West Indies test batsman; Jacques Prinsloo, captain of British Army cricket team; Zaka Ashraf, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman; Dav Whatmore, Pakistan cricket coach; Imran Khan, former Pakistan test captain
