    Keep it in Pakistan, if you don't want to go, don't go. I'm not getting into this one again . My opinions are clear.

    To be fair for the Kiwis they obviously have some reasons to worry .They indeed came to pakistan in the last series in 2001 only to find a huge explosion near to their hotel room which shattered some window glasses found nearby Craig Mcmillan .The situation at that time was better ,i guess .

    There is a certain unpredictability in pakistan when u watch from outside ,however may not be the case when u r living there .

    It is getting there tbh. Think we would struggle to get a Twenty20 played due to the light on the grimmer days in October, playing a supposedly prestigious tournament here anytime outside of the regular cricket season is foolish tbh

    6PM or so TBH, by the end (just before the clocks go back). Early darkness, though, is the least of the problems - coldness and dampness are the bigger ones.

    Early darkness aside it is usually pretty grim anyway, bad light would be a constant issue I reckon

    Probably. I'm assuming they'd do the only thing that made the slightest of sense and have every game at a floodlit ground.

    Surely if England are willing to tour Pakistan, and lets face it we're surely the biggest target of any team given the current international climate, then i really cant see why the other 'Western' teams cant also tour.

    Or just make every game a day/nighter. How would that work for the TV in India, time wise?

    Really hope that they don't move it. ICC should stand tough here.

    they just need to go and play. there's a risk of danger anywhere you go, and that's like saying india, australia, whoever, refuse to tour england b/c of the terrorist attack in london a few years back. be consistent with your decisions, why does it always seem like the "western" countries are looking for an excuse not to play in the subcontinent? i guess players just can't acclimatize to the cusine and pollution and look for a convenient way out...
