Afghanistan series gives Pak glimmer of hope

KARACHI - Pakistani hopes of reviving international cricket rose after successfully hosting a one-day series against Afghanistan, but experts on Monday warned against any imminent breakthrough.

Pakistan's second string whitewashed Afghanistan -- the first international team to tour since the Sri Lankan team was attacked in Lahore in 2009 -- in the three-match series which finished on Sunday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said the untroubled series, albeit against lowly-ranked Afghanistan, sent positive signals after international matches were suspended following the March 2009 attacks that killed eight people, and wounded seven Sri Lankan players and their assistant coach.
