Pak VS SA match in jeopardy

It seems like South African cricket team is reluctant to play its one-day match in Karachi scheduled on October 29. Can’t blame them. Anyone would have reacted like that under the circumstances. But I really hope they play as we are anxiously waiting for quality entertainment in the city.

    the series shud be called off….
    thing is why r we so desparate to be an enlightendly moderate nation. Bombs r blowing up, massive army bombardment is going on at civilians in Waziristan, there is mass migration in that area. Yet we like to show we r a progressive and world-compliant state.

    did anyone notice the number of times the cameramen at the two matches were focusing on ‘cute chicks’…
    whats wrong with ‘ugly shalwar kameez guys’ NOT to appear on tv…

    cleaning is not about hiding the dirt beneath the carpet….

    Really? you’re kidding, as usual.

    Did Australia cancel the tour after 7/7 bomb blasts in London? they didn’t even cancel the match. WC’07 was played in Jamaica where crime rate is exceptionally high and hundreds of people are murdered per year, yet the tournament continued even after death of Woolmer. Even South africa is not heaven on earth. When these teams can play in other countries/cities then what’s wrong in Karachi?

    It’s upto cricket boards how they deal others. If a board is impotent then it doesn’t mean one start blaming the city itself.

    atif bhai.. what r u taking about ?? aik dum irrelevant and untrue comment. firstof all paki camera men do not cover the match. and they’ll focus more on burqa posh women and bearded men than the nonbeadred and tshirt wearing chick, infact i have never seen any discrimination of the two kinds during the match.. sufi chachay kee bhee darhi hai.. waziristan may ager match hai tou that shud be cancelled. abb gher may mehndi laga ker otu nahi beth saktay na.. humay bhee aaj offive nahi anan chayay tha.. matric ka papers 2 saal k liye delay kerdainay chayay !!

    I am sure PCB will happily move the venue from Karachi to any other city on a minutest hint from RSA officials. If they can play in Colombo (having daily bomb scares) they why not Karachi where police officials close various roads when the team travels just to provide security.

    Well they should shutdown all the stadiums in Pakistan, except for the stadiums in the province of Punjab. Look at the venues selected for the SA ODI games. 3 games in Lahore ?? The SA team and all other visiting teams, should just come to Lahore, play matches there and go home.
