India/Pakistan boycotting if it is moved is very childish IMO, though I can see why they would do it if they genuinely feel everybody would be safe in Pakistan.
Didn't they tour there less than a year ago? itstl.
The one, the only CW Black
Code:47.3 W Coppinger to Heads Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
First recorded incidence of anyone from The Wirral being described as "haughty". GIMH's clearly being hanging around with us southern snobs for too long; he'll be getting out of the shower to take a piss next.
Anyway, as DCYE suggests, an interesting call. I'd guess it's a player-lead pull-out as the SA board seems to have invariably supported the Asian bloc of late.

"I don't believe a word of Pietersen's book, but then I don't believe a word anyone else has said either."
- Simon Barnes renders further comment on KP's autobiography superfluous in a sentence
I think if all the non-asian countries pull out, the asian bloc might as well conduct a 20-20 Asia cup.
Funny how some people argue, 'If they could play Ashes despite bombs in London, if they could play IPL despite the Bomb blasts in jaipur, they ought to play in Pakistan too'
In the former it was national pride with a bit of personal glory plus money, in the latter, it's pure bloody filthy money. Sadly Champions trophy offers nothing in that scale. Can't really blame players for lacking motivation.
I can't understand why the media has decided to report South Africa's decision to withdraw on security grounds as a 'boycott'. Completely misleading. There's no moral principle involved, just a rational decision based on whether it is safe to go or not. If I was invited to go for a weekend break in Baghdad right now, I would say no - but I wouldn't be boycotting the place...
Would rather see SA playing than Pakistan tbh.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
If Shoaib plays, I'd rather see Pakistan
with all the unfortunate bomb balst happening in india i think australia will not be touring india as well
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Some might argue that the mere useless existence of the Champions Trophy a principle is worth boycotting
