    That was kinda what I meant TBH. Though we both know how cold it routinely is at 10PM on an October evening.

    I'm really too frustrated to say much on the issue. I'll just echo those that say the tournament should be staged in Pakistan. Those that want to come play, great! Those that don't, well I'd rather not say what I truly feel about them.

    How come many Asian people criticising the Aussies live in America. Hypocrits. If your going to criticise Aussies for not wanting to go to Pakistan you're arguement is not helped by the fact that you or your parents travelled across the world to get away from Pakistan

    That is probably the most idiotic comment I have ever read on Cricket Web - and that's saying something.

    Wow. Seriously something has to be done about this poster, been making comments like this from the moment he arrived.

    India are probably the biggest target in Pakistan, considering the history and Kashmir. But after that, it would be the English, no doubt. Both India and England have been very good about touring Pakistan though. Personally, it astonishes me how Pakistan put up with it, they should refuse to tour the countries that pretty much have said they won't tour Pakistan (through actions if not words). Especially as there are other countries who go to Pakistan just fine.

    this is the dumbest thing i think i have seen. just because asians move from their native countries does not in any way mean that we won't go back to visit our families/ sightsee in that country.

    there was a bombing at a train station in my family's town (suburb of mumbai) a few years ago, and that has no bearing on whether or not I go back to india. as a matter of fact, i will probably be going to india this winter, and will probably end up going to jaipur again to sightsee

    Wouldnt solve anything

    Firstly, Pakistan needs the money that comes from touring a country like Australia and secondly there's evidence the game's population is waning in Pak as well. Limit games to the usual suspects and even more people would turn off

    No one goes to Test cricket anyway, before or now. I am not sure its about the money because the ECB offered a substantial sum to play elsewhere and they've refused in the past.

    Absolute rubbish.

    You had better stop spouting idiotic rubbish, because judging by the manner that you've posted so far, you're not wanted here.
