Islamabad, Oct 29: Pakistan cricket's new chief Zaka Ashraf said Friday his main objective will be to bring international cricket back to his country after an attack by gunmen more than two years ago led to a boycott by touring teams.


Foreign sides have stayed away since March 2009 when gunmen attacked the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore, leaving six police officers and a van driver dead.

Ashraf said in a statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board that he would work closely with international partners to ensure that ”the millions of cricket-loving Pakistanis are not denied the ability to watch their stars and the game they love on our country's soil.”

He said the isolation of Pakistan cricket ”needs to be addressed.”
