Saudi Arabia’s envoy promises to invite the Pakistan cricket team as royal guests for Hajj 2025 if they win the World Cup

The Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Pakistan, Nawaf bin Saeed Ahmed Al Maliki, shared a heartfelt video message expressing his best wishes for the Pakistan cricket team as they compete in the T20 Cricket World Cup 2024. In his special message, Al Maliki conveyed his optimism and support for the team, saying, “My message to my brothers of the Pakistan cricket team is that, Allah willing, you will win this tournament, and the Pakistani people will celebrate the team’s success in the World Cup 2024.” His words reflect a strong sense of camaraderie and encouragement, hoping the team achieves great success in the tournament.

Al Maliki also expressed his prayers for the overall prosperity and development of Pakistan, adding, “I am praying for Pakistan’s prosperity and development. After winning the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, the Pakistani team will be the royal guest on Hajj next year.” This statement not only shows his support for the team but also highlights the special honor and recognition they would receive if they triumph in the tournament.

The Pakistan cricket team is set to begin their World Cup campaign on June 6 with an opening match against the host team, the USA, in Dallas. This match marks the start of their journey in the tournament, where they aim to showcase their skills and determination. Following the match against the USA, Pakistan will face a series of important matches: against India on June 9, Canada on June 11, and Ireland on June 16. Each of these matches is crucial as the team aims to secure a spot in the next round. The tournament format is such that the top two teams from each group will advance to the Super 8 stage, which will take place in the West Indies. This stage will see the best teams from the initial rounds compete for a place in the final stages of the World Cup.

The ambassador’s message has certainly provided a morale boost for the Pakistan cricket team and their fans. It underscores the strong ties and mutual respect between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, extending beyond diplomacy into sports and culture.

As the team prepares for their first match, they carry with them the hopes and prayers of their nation and well-wishers from around the world. Support from figures like Ambassador Al Maliki serves as an additional source of inspiration, driving them to perform at their best and aim for victory in the T20 World Cup 2024.
