Pakistan- World Cup

comment on the article

I'm sad that Pakistan can not host the 14 games they were meant to host for the Cricket World Cup in 2011. As an England and Pakistans supporter, I am very dissapointed that a country that loves the sport like a religon can not host it anymore. But, I am aware of the reasons and I totally agree with the ICC. What does this actually mean for cricket in Pakistan?

I'm hoping something happens, and it happens fast.

Pakistan is not in this position through anyone's fault but its own Abbas. Had they provided proper security to Sri Lanka and the match officials they might have a chance.

We have had bombings in London but it's not like 14 gunmen could casually stroll the streets of any UK city before and after an attack with no attempt to disguise their purpose.

I'd like to think we would not leave the match officials to be killed as well.

I agree news channels will not get the complexity of issues and that they should only be a start point to further reading.

the security in south asia is a big problem. these stupid, uneducated fools have ruined cricket especially in PAKISTAN. i think the icc were right on the decision about the CWC, but at the same time, they need to discuss some sort of compensation package, like they have done with the champions trophy.

Its the right decision mainly because cricket doesn't seem to be the religion Pakistan follow any longer! They should kick the taleban out of their country.

at the end of the day, any pakistani fan wo believes that india had a big hand in this is a bigger fool than those who join he terrorists.

open your eyes, can't you see that the terrorists have taken over your country, it is upto you to throw then out.

it is time to decide, what do you want, you country to prosper, or back religious nuts just because they are the same religion?????

Firtly Billionplus..
for eg: BBC reported about the student terrorists caught in the UK last week.

Allegedly as one has already been released..

However whilst I agree that Pakistan is probably not the best place to be holding a cricket tournament at the moment, India, Sri Lanka and for that matter Bangladesh are not any safer.. The single biggest issue is that the ICC are scared to upset the Indians who as a country provide their single biggest revenue stream..

Stop coupling yourself with the other countries. Islamic terrorism and the Taleban come from Pakistan, not the rest. Pakistan is unique in this situation. None of the other 3 countries have such a problem with terrorists. Most of the terrorism in India stems from Pakistan. Pakistan's chickens are coming home to roost.
