Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar got emotional on Twitter about Pakistan hosting the T20 WC for the blind in 2018 in Dubai. Akhtar also said that he hoped that there would be a change of heart and Pakistan who play their home matches in Dubai, would be allowed to hold the World Cup at home.

Akhtar said that he was happy that Pakistan had been give a chance to host the event at "home". "Happy to note that 2018 T20 WC for my visually challenged brothers could be hosted by Pakistan, albeit in Dubai," he tweeted.

Pakistan have been playing all their home matches in UAE, apart from one series against Zimbabwe in Pakistan. But Akhtar said that he was hoping that the ICC would change their mind about the venue and let the Asian team host the event in Pakistan.

The relation between India and Pakistan has been tense to put it lightly, but the former Pakistan pacer hopes that the Indians would allow the Pakistan team to participate in the 2017 edition of the tournament that is scheduled to be held in the India tweeting "Hope those who have eyes have heart too that beats for those who can't see.".
