India vs Pakistan tour may happen near future!

It is sure that there are many people who have controversy about India-Pakistan cricket tour. But it is sure that it is the most anticipated cricket events of the world and many things depends on it related to cricket business. Thought it hopes, the cricket match between Australia and England is more attractive especially the Ashes series, I think it is more that Ashes.

The cricket series between Indian and Pakistan has been eliminated due to the massive Mumbai attack last year. After that massacre Indian intelligent reported that the tour on Pakistan will not be safe and sound for the Indian cricket team and Indian government eliminated the visit. Later it proved that the report was totally true when Sri Lanka cricket team had to return home unfinished their test matches attack on their bus when all the teammates are come to the play ground.


The terror attacks in Mumbai in November jeopardised India's tour of Pakistan and relations between the two countries. The Indian government directed the BCCI to call off the tour alleging that Pakistan were involved in those attacks. Pakistan cricket was jolted again in March when the touring Sri Lankans were attacked when travelling in the team bus in Lahore in the middle of a Test match. With teams refusing to tour the country in the immediate future, the PCB has explored the option of playing in neutral venues and Butt said that India was welcome to the idea.

Despite of forecast, Sri Lanka visited Pakistan but the security intelligent was totally failed to protect the visitors from this kinds of attack. Anyway I am not going to explain the political matter. Due to security reason the ICC champions’ trophy had been shifted to South Africa that is going to held one year later.

Now, Pakistan is conversing with BCCI to make a tour in a neutral venue. This is not only the matter of Pakistan but also related to the foreign ministry. Australia cricket team made objection to visit Pakistan instead they visited United Arab Emirates for a limited over series and Twenty20 cricket matches. I think India will be agreed to visit in some neutral venue.
