ICC Mulls Over Champions Trophy Venue

Written by Commoner on July 21st, 2008   (370 views)

Though its the duty of the International Cricket Council to ensure the safety and security of the players of all teams when they play within or outside their country in any international level, but ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat must also keep the interest of the game in perspective for the long run.

He must not act party, and he must not give jitters to the players. Cricketers were warned on Sunday that their security cannot be guaranteed in Pakistan during September’s Champions Trophy and Haroon Lorgat was also of the opinion that the representatives of the players were justifiably not ready to play in Pakistan latter this year.

If the Champions Trophy is moved from Pakistan then it would be a great loss to the game and it would disappoint billions of passionate spectators in the Pakistan and the neighboring countries. The problem is not that adverse as it is projected by the media. South Africa, England, India, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe they all have toured Pakistan in the last few years without any problems. We also hosted the Asia Cup just now without any problems.

So ICC should liaison with other teams and do a concerted effort to not to change the venue.
