India’s cricket board announced on last Thursday that it would not send the national team to Pakistan on the orders of the government in New Delhi, which has blamed Pakistan-based militants for the deadly siege in Mumbai. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said it would lose at least 25 million dollars in television rights and sponsorships over the cancellation of the tour, which was to include three Tests, five One-day Internationals and a Twenty20 International.
Now the gloom is prevalent in the head quarters of the PCB, as this was the third event called off here in a year amid security fears. Surely its a big blow the Pakistan, but then its not end of the world and a wide open world is there and the cricket loving nation of Pakistan is resilient and know that this time will pass and the good times will come.
India is the enemy and enemy does what it has done. So there must not be big deal about it.
Abdul Qadir is right on the spot when he says that we must look forward. Chief selector Abdul Qadir declared on Friday that Pakistan will raise a strong squad for the hastily-arranged home series against Sri Lanka, saying that he intended to use the assignment as a launch pad for the team’s bid to improve its Test ranking.More on:Abdul Qadir, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Twenty20
