    The Indian team just played a tournament there and by all accounts the players would have no problems going back anytime. Why would you doubt they feel Pakistan is safe to tour?

    Or keep postponing it till 2010 and then have back-to-back Champions Trophies with a couple of days' break in between.

    The fact is that bombings have now become a part and parcel in the lives of most of the people in the sub-continent, everytime you step out of your house there is always this danger lurking (which btw is a very sorry thing, but its the reality), but for people in western countries these bombings are even more terrifing because bombing incidents are very rare in those countries, so they feel much more safer on that side of the world.

    Let's be honest if this tournament was to take place and had every team toured Pakistan, then with the kind of security the PCB had promised to arrange, the security of no team would have been a problem. The players from the western countries are obviously scared of the situation prevalent in Pakistan for sometime now, and hence they have expressed their concern, there are obviously two ways to look at this situation, one can always say that if the terrorist groups were really heel-bent on hurting these teams then its not really necessary for them to wait for these teams to come to Pakistan to do so, they can target them in any part of the world (and that's the sorry state of the world we live in), and if one looks at all this from the perspective of players from the western countries, then they obviously don't want to go to Pakistan due to all the terrorist attacks that have been taking place there, and they see danger in going to Pakistan in such circumstances.

    Think all the non sub continental countries should select army personnel for their cricket teams so that they can tour sub continent with out the fear of bombings
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Champions Trophy 2008

    Pakistan hope to fill gap

    Cricinfo staff

    August 25, 2008

    Pakistan are confident that they will be able to confirm a series against a Test-playing nation in order to fill the gap created by the postponement of the Champions Trophy which was scheduled to be held in September.


    Shafqat Naghmi, Pakistan board's chief operating officer, told the News that the PCB would contact Australia, South Africa, England and New Zealand to try and fix matches for September.


    Pakistan could also invite either India or Sri Lanka for a home series but they've already played against them this year. Pakistan are also hosting India for a full Test and one-day series early next year.

    "We don't want to take any gloss away from what is our most important home assignment [against India] by playing against them so close to the series," Naghmi said. "Sri Lanka is also an option."

    Australia are set to tour Pakistan next April for a five-match one-day series and a Twenty20 and Naghmi was optimistic they would honour their commitment. However, he admitted his disappointment at the non-Asian teams for pulling out.

    "We are definitely disappointed by Australia because they have not toured us for 10 years," Naghmi told AFP. "Australia have a commitment of playing five one-day internationals in April next year so we hope by then their fears are removed and they play in our country."


    The ICC postponed the Champions Trophy, which was due to begin in Pakistan in 19 days' time, to October 2009, after five of the eight participating nations confirmed during a teleconference on Sunday that they would not send their teams for the event due to security concerns.

    Does PCB really expect Australia to tour for a 5 match bilateral series in September when they weren't ready to come for CT!?!

    Shame is, he's not always a joke, he can be good value. Deliberately generalised inflammatory comments like that aren't really helpful to anyone though.
