Pakistan on the Clyde?

Well, why not? It's being suggested by Cricket Scotland chief executive Roddy Smith that Glasgow's Titwood cricket ground could be a suitable venue for One Day International cricket matches involving the Pakistani national team, in light of the need to find neutral venues after the dreadful occurrences in Lahore over recent days, involving the Sri Lankan team. Several countries have cancelled or amended cricket fixtures in Pakistan in recent years because of security concerns and Australia for example has declined to field a team there since 1998.

It would certainly raise the profile of Scotland in cricket.
