    Sri Lanka reject Pakistan tour over security


    Sri Lanka Cricket on Tuesday turned down an invitation by Pakistan to return to the troubled nation, saying security was still a problem two years after its players were attacked there. "We are not going to send our team to Pakistan," Sri Lanka Cricket chairman D.S. de Silva told a foreign news agency. "I have asked the secretary to inform the Pakistan Cricket Board today (Tuesday) of the decision. "We have instead requested Pakistan to host the matches in Colombo or at a neutral venue like Dubai or Abu Dhabi," he said. The Pakistan Cricket Board announced at the weekend that they had invited Sri Lanka to play three Tests, five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 game in a series proposed for October.

    Let them have match between LET & TTP...there will be lot of spectators...The CUP should be named after OSAMA...like OSAMA memorial cup...sponsors would be ISI & Saudi Arabia...Play ground would be in waziristan or Swat area...Chief guest would be Mullah omar & Jorge W bush...Winning team will have a chance to Visit USA & lossing team will have to go back to training camps in POK...Man of the match will get a Shaheen missile & Man of the series will be awarded with Pakistans own Nuclear BOMB...Match should not be under PCB or there can be Match Fixing... a win will be celebrated by Attacking Pak navy & airforce bases with AK-47 & grande launchers...:laugh::rofl::victory::yahoo:

    Why would Sri Lanka tour Pakistan, it is truly absurd, the country cannot even safeguard its own armed forces assets, so how will they assure the safety of an entire touring party. If Sri Lanka does tour Pakistan, what happens to them will be their responsibility.

    Last time SriLankan team were promised presidential security and found out how their president is guarded, hence you hardly see 10% going out of his rat hole. This time, you cannot fool them again.
