  • They must be really desperate to risk their lives playing in Pakistan. Especially after what happened in 2009 in Lahore and the most recent islamic extremist attack in Colombo.

    • @Admin this guy has been making anti Islam and anti Pakistan comments on different threads. I understand he is high on on his cow mother’s piss.

  • Their prime minister’s office has warned them against playing in Pakistan. There’s intelligence that they will be targeted by our ISI bred strategic assets. So I’m guessing even this second string team will stay away.
