Money talks in cricket, says Usman Khawaja

Money talks in cricket, says Usman Khawaja

Usman Khawaja, Pakistan-born Australian cricketer, supports Australia tour of Pakistan saying that it is a safe place to play cricket.

After New Zealand and England have opted out of Pakistan tour citing ‘inappropriate and ‘unknown’ security threats, the cricket fraternity has gathered together to talk on the synopsis.

People with different mindsets, popping up with various statements, are being noticed. Khawaja is one of those optimisitics to see cricket back in Pakistan.

He feels there is no reason to deny. Khawaja, opening up the facts, added that no one will like to visit because it is Pakistan. He urged people prefer money over cricket.

“I feel it’s very easy for players and organisations to say no to Pakistan, because it’s Pakistan. I think the same thing would apply too, if it were Bangladesh. But nobody would say no to India, if they’re in the same situation,” he was quoted saying by ESPNcricinfo.

“Money talks, we all know that, and that’s probably a big part of it. They keep proving time and time again through their tournaments that they’re a safe place to play cricket. I think there’s no reason why we shouldn’t go back,” said Khawaja.

Pakistan is safe, says Usman Khawaja

He says that he and his mates feel secure in the cricket-loving nation as they have experienced the vibed during PSL 2021. Notably, despite Khawaja’s willingness, Australia’s tour seems to be in jeopardy following the consequences set up by NZC, ECB respectively.

“There’s a lot of security. Heavy, heavy security. I’ve heard nothing but reports about people feeling safe. Even talking to the guys during the PSL about what it’s like…they would say the same thing to me ‘like 10 years ago, maybe not, but now 100 percent’.”
