On cricket relations with India, Misbah said he would like to see both teams playing against each other regularly.
"We need to have regular bilateral cricket series because nowadays when we play after a long gap there is lot of tension associated with our matches and there is extra pressure on the players. If we play against each other regularly I think it will be better for people of both countries," Misbah said.
Other former Test players also welcomed Bangladesh's decision to tour Pakistan.
"It is good news although it would have been better if they had played a proper series but at least the ice is finally going to break and credit must go to the present Board set up for making efforts to revive international cricket in Pakistan after the unfortunate incident of 2009," former captain Rashid Latif said.
Former Test captain Moin Khan also welcomed the move.
"I think the Pakistani people deserve more international matches and the ICC must support us more in our endeavours.
Former Pakistan captain and allrounder Shahid Afridi said that It’s a major breakthrough and a very good news for the whole nation, for Pakistan team and millions of fans who have been deprived of international game for the last three years,” he said.
Foreign teams shunned Pakistan as a cricket venue after the attacks, forcing them to play their home series on neutral venues, mostly in the United Arab Emirates.
Pakistan’s foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar praised efforts from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf to revive internationals.
“PCB’s efforts have finally borne fruit and Bangladesh team’s visit will help bring international cricket back to Pakistan and will motivate more teams to come to our country,” Khar said.
But former Pakistan captain, Rashid Latif sounded a note of caution, saying that we must not leave any loopholes in security because we cannot afford a minor mistake or any lapse in arrangements,” said Latif. “Other teams will also be motivated after Bangladesh tour but we have to make the best arrangements.”
Interior minister Rehman Malik reiterated a promise to put in place stringent security measures for the Bangladesh team.
“We will leave no stone unturned and put in place the best possible security for the Bangladesh team as per our promise and make this tour an exemplary one so that other teams also tour us,” said Malik.
