No Cricket for You

Because of grave security concerns, Pakistan will host no World Cup cricket matches in 2011:

International Cricket Council president David Morgan said: “It is a regrettable decision but our priority is to deliver a safe, secure, successful event.”

Pakistan were due to co-host the event with India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Given recent history and the country’s current straits, this seems like a wise and obvious decision. On another level, when India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka come off looking like comparative havens of calm, you have serious security concerns.
