The Goras, Indians and the Windies are all in the same boat, antagonize one they will all unite. BD and Sri Lanka are with them also. The only team that won't mind coming to Pakistan is Afghanistan at the moment. :hitwall:

Pakistan is a 3rd tiered team in World Cricket. It's at least 10 years past the time Pakistan should have withdrawn from ICC and devoted all it's talent and resources in other sports, those that have wider global pull and acceptance, Soccer, Tennis, Golf, Athletics, etc.

And I say this as someone who has played cricket at a semi pro level, members of my immediate family have played representative cricket and my father played first class for PIA and managed/coached PIA team when half of it's members were made up of Pakistan national team.

Cricket sadly has devolved into an Indian only sport. Even if Pakistan wasn't isolated, India's dominance of cricket, renders it an extremely inequitable and lopsided enterprise. The way tours are planned, IPL windows, and high number of test matches allocated only to the top tiered country makes is the most unequal of sport.

It's high time we cut our losses and focus elsewhere. Cricket is a dying sport and I don't see many other countries besides the big 3 putting out competitive sides. It may not die in 5 years but the way things are going, there will be big decline in cricket's following and fandom outside of India in the next decade.

Sad events allround.

Pakistan seem to be a big victim here.
Would really like to know the nature of this security issue as the NZ team have been in Pakistan without
incident and appeared comfortable until match day.

Really sad times for cricket generally.

New Zealand is a team other than west indies whom pakistani use to love even in England vs New Zealand world cup Match all Pakistanis were supporting New Zealand and Jacinda Ardern remains DP for many Pakistanis in fb and other apps... but they fall very short... the reputation they build in decades has destroyed in a day for some small benefits... what a shame they are bringing home ..

NZ burned many hearts today. Very disappointing.

Why have we not improved in Football/soccer? Poor broke countries in Afrcia are so far ahead of us.
Soccer takes a toll on the physical well-being of dedicated players; injuries may compound over time. Many have weak bone density and Vitamin D deficiency in Pakistan unfortunately. This is my observation at localized levels.

Another factor is that Pakistani Soccer team(s) are unable to qualify for Soccer World Cup in trial matches.

‘New Zealand cricket team may face terror attack in Pakistan’

Former Taliban commander Ehsanullah Ehsan says the IS set-up in Pakistan is preparing for an attack on New Zealand players.


New Delhi: New Zealand’s cricket tour of Pakistan, slated for next month, has come under terror threat with an imminent possibility of the touring cricketers being attacked by one of the many terror groups active in the volatile region.
This tour, in which New Zealand will be playing three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and five Twenty-20 matches, is scheduled to be held from 17 September to 3 October, during which the ODIs will be played in Rawalpindi, while the shorter version of the game will be played in Lahore.
The match schedule was announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on 5 August. The PCB thanked New Zealand Cricket (NZC) for agreeing to play two additional T-20 matches. The New Zealand team will be traveling to Pakistan after nearly 18 years; the last time they had gone there was in 2003.
Former Taliban commander Ehsanullah Ehsan, who was closely associated with one of the factions of Taliban before agreeing to surrender to the Pakistan army in 2017 and then escaping from their “in-home” custody in January 2020, said that the Islamic State (IS) set-up in Pakistan was engaged in preparing for the attack on New Zealand players. It is pertinent to mention that the cadre comprising these Pakistan-based terror groups move from one organization to the other and someone who is today allied to the IS might tomorrow join the Jaish-e-Mohammed or Lashkar-e-Tayyaba.
In March 2009, the cavalcade carrying the Sri Lankan cricket team was attacked by a local terror group comprising 12 gunmen near the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore and this had resulted in the death of six policemen and two civilians, apart from causing injuries to six Sri Lankan cricketers. The daring morning attack, which went on for more than 10 minutes in the heart of Lahore, ended with the attackers escaping on motorcycles.
For more than 10 years, no international team toured Pakistan after the attack. It was only in December 2019 that Sri Lanka agreed to play there. The Sunday Guardian reached out to both the International Cricket Council (ICC) and NZC for a response on these developments. In its response, Richard Boock, manager, public affairs, New Zealand Cricket, told The Sunday Guardian that on the matter of security, the body goes by the advice it receives from an independent team of consultants. “What I can say is that we commission an independent team of consultants to undertake pre-departure and on-going security assessments ahead of every overseas tour—and Pakistan is no exception. The NZC is confident in the quality of the advice it receives from this source,” Boock said. No response was received from the ICC.
