Islamabad: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to send video footage to International Cricket Council (ICC) of the recently held National Twenty20 Cup in Lahore as part of its efforts to convince the game`s apex body about the security situation at home.

According to a top PCB official said, "The video footage will show the ICC how security arrangements were made for the popular tournament that featured almost all the top players of the country and attracted huge crowds.”

"The step is aimed at convincing the ICC and its member nations to help resume international cricket in Pakistan," he added.

Pakistan has not hosted any international cricket since the March 2008 terrorist attack on Sri Lankan team in Lahore. The country was supposed to co-host the World Cup 2011 along with India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, but due to that attack it was stripped of its right.

The ICC`s top bosses will scrutinise the footage and it will also send its task force that was formed to help Pakistan cricket come out of the current crisis.
