This resulted in less practice at home ground for the team, a loss in revenue and increase in expenditure to hold their home matches in UAE. However, post Pakistan s maiden Champions Trophy title win, an ICC World XI side is all set to tour the country for a few matches and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ben-cutting" target="_blank">Ben Cutting</a> feels this can benefit Pakistan in more international teams being interested to visit for cricket tours. What is even overwhelming is the fact that <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/sri-lanka" target="_blank">Sri Lanka</a>, who were the victims of Gaddafi Attack, will visit Pakistan following the World XI matches. <strong>READ: </strong><a title="Helping Pakistan is important for cricket, says Collingwood" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/helping-pakistan-is-important-for-cricket-says-paul-collingwood-639502"><strong>Helping Pakistan is important for cricket, says Collingwood</strong> </a> <p></p> <p></p> Obviously there s not been a lot of international cricket played there since 2009 when the Sri Lankans toured, but I think things have changed a bit since then. They played the PSL final there earlier this year, which went off without a hitch, and a few overseas boys were part of that. I spoke to a few of those guys, they were happy with it all, and I spoke with the security guys when I made my decision. It's a big thing for world cricket to be able to take this sort of game there a World XI against Pakistan, Cutting told <i>cricket.com.au</i> about the matter. <p></p> <p></p> Hopefully it goes well, I believe Sri Lanka are touring after us, and that might start the ball rolling for other international teams taking cricket back to Pakistan, which can only be a good thing for world cricket, he added. <p></p> <p></p>When asked if his family is okay with him touring Pakistan, Cutting said, They all trusted my decision. They understand it's a pretty important game to be a part of, not just for myself but for cricket in Pakistan. So they're comfortable with it.
