You do realize that plenty of us either live in the subcontinent or visit regularly? Of course we can form an opinion on whether it's safe there or not. Add to that the fact that no cricket team or individual has EVER been hurt while touring the subcontinent and I'd say the concerns are unfounded. As far as too many "variables" to consider, those exist in every country. There is an element of risk everywhere.
