2011 World Cup of Cricket Moved From India

Written by Commoner on December 2nd, 2008   (272 views)

International cricket council is seriously thinking of moving the 2011 cricket world cup to Australia and New Zealand. ICC chief executives’ meeting in South Africa next week could possibly discuss putting Australia and New Zealand as standby hosts for the event.

The sub-continent has witnessed widespread violence in recent times; several teams have refused to travel to Pakistan, while Sri Lanka too has witnessed violence between the Sri Lankan army and the LTTE, and now there have been more than a handful of instances of terror attacks in India.

India and Pakistan should give positive signals to ICC to not to move the world cup. India has to play the part by not canceling the tour to Pakistan. India’s government has refused permission to send a cricket team for a full tour of Pakistan early next year following the deadly Mumbai attacks. The tour was cancelled amid a government probe into Pakistani links to the assaults on the country’s financial capital by heavily-armed militants that left nearly 200 people dead.

Cricket officials in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) had offered to host the series. But India and Pakistan should show mature attitude and solve the matters themselves.
