Pakistan has been told to be patient while foreign teams build up enough confidence in the country's security to send its national sides there on tour. With hundreds of people having died in suicide bomb attacks across the country, Pakistan has become a no-go zone for foreign teams for more than a year. Owing to the security and safety concerns of visiting countries, the Pakistan Cricket Board was forced to organize its home series at neutral venues in the United Arab Emirates, while its home test series against New Zealand last year was played on opposition soil.
