KARACHI: Afghanistan paceman Khaliq Dad Noori on Tuesday said his country was ready to play international cricket in Pakistan at a time when security fears have stopped most teams touring the country.

Noori, who led Afghanistan's youth team to win a club-level tournament in Karachi Monday, hoped the visit would help revive cricket in Pakistan.
"Participation in this club-level event is a small step from our side," said Noori.

He said the youth team have clout, with seven members who played for the national side in the World Twenty20 in the West Indies, and recently toured Scotland.
