    I don't need to act, the way sporting teams act at the mention of a pakistan tour, shows the reality.
    So India is the land of the civilised? Delhi is a safe haven for women????

    For whoever is using the lynching from yesterday as a reason to not tour, that's a little ridiculous. While it's a horrible incident, it falls into a different category of concern. A cricket team surrounded by security in a stadium is at almost no risk of being lynched, like that just isn't going to happen.

    As for NZ pullout, it seems a little fishy because first England's govt said there was no security risk, and then now we have Australia agreeing to tour Pakistan. Whether they come or not is to be seen, but the fact that they even agreed is a little interesting.

    I don't think cricket tours will be impacted due to burning a foreigner. It may have an impact on fans from outside visiting Pakistan. Not just fans, any foreigner, who comes across this news, may feel impacted. It's human nature.

    As far as the NZ tour goes, none of us will ever know the details. If the government tells a team to get out of the country then they will get out even if the game was taking place in Aus, Eng, or India.

    I don't think local law and order will have too much impact on tours. But this good Taliban and bad Taliban, Good terrorist and bad terrorist is simply not acceptable outside Pakistan. Pakistan is yet to realize it or purposely chose to ignore it for various reasons. It won't have a direct impact on tours, but it's guaranteed that the same security threat will be seen differently by visiting parties when it comes to Pakistan. An unfortunate situation as cricket fans, but that's the reality.

    Fair points, but I think this "good Taliban" talk isn't really the concern nowadays. It's about amount of terrorism incidents that occur. The country has very few incidents nowadays which is good.

    The fact that Aus are even willing to consider touring Pakistan is a good sign. Let's hope said tour and other ones go ahead.

    Indeed. Earlier Aus was not even entertaining that idea, so it's a good thing. Pakistan just needs to keep inviting teams and slowly international teams will make a part of a normal tour. Just needs to have patience. I still remember Fanie roaming in Pakistan on a bicycle. With time when players feel safe, it may happen in the future as well.

    Thankfully with Australia and now England here, such occurrences will not happen.

    Felt like a stab in the back.

    Very painful memory.

    Very bad memories of that day. I remember that I was going for jumma prayer & while coming back I was fully prepared that I will watch the toss etc etc but then it happened.

    But I fee because of that incident the foreign teams are now more likely to complete their tour instead of going back without any issue. For example if NZ didn't backed out then there's no way that Australia would have continued the tour after the blast in Peshawar's Masjid.
