UPDATE 1-Cricket-Pakistan ditched as 2011 World Cup host | Sports | Cricket | Reuters
* Pakistan lose 2011 World Cup hosting rights
* Safety is paramount - ICC
* Tournament to go ahead in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
This could turn out to be the biggest motivation for team Pak to win WC2011
One of my friends said "And it’s not like we haven’t defeated India enough. I think we’ve beaten them on a couple of occasions, on a lot of occasions, in fact."
hope Pakistan gets some financial compensation not that it matters as it would probably go in to Ijaz Butt and hiss goons pockets rather then for domestic game development.
Sucks but when you offer "head of state" level security and then a team barely escapes with their lives, can you blame anyone for not wanting to come? Pakistan clearly has more important issues than a sporting event.
Asking for compensation doesn't sound right. It sounds as if everyone else is responsible for the situation and owes it to Pakistan to make good its losses which are essentialy due to an internal situation.
Keeping the domestic cricket going (although one doesn't know when some mad man may issue a 'fatwa' against this 'Western' game) and having the team involved in international games is a prime concern. The world cricket community should help out as should neighbours like India and Sri Lanka. Pakistan cricket needs to keep its friendly ties with BCCI which were seeing such dramatic improvement in the last few years and not allow politicians to use cricket as a political tool.
BCCI can probably do more to help Pakistan out (not by sending a team to tour that country as is being expected) but in so many other ways. For that, both boards have to rise above the political agendas of the two countries. Whether they are strong and independent enough to do that is another matter altogether.
Miandad slams hasty ICC…
Miandad's comments come days after the Pakistani government bowed to Taliban militants in northwest Pakistan by allowing Sharia Law in the Swat Valley and according to the BBC, the Taliban are now a mere 62 miles away from the Pakistani capital, Islamabad.
