Smog Postpone’s West Indies Tour

Smog Postpone’s West Indies Tour


The highly anticipated tour of West Indies to Lahore has been postponed due to extreme smog in Lahore thus making the conditions to be impossible for cricket, alongwith other issues.

The tour has been postponed until next year. The smog has disturbed the even domestic matches for the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy have been disturbed so the PCB have decided to delay the series.

However, other reasons have also led to the decision. “A few of the players are unavailable at the moment and there have also been concerns about security.”

The final issue — that of security — will be a particular cause of concern for the PCB and for fans of cricket in Pakistan. International cricket is slowly returning to the country, with Pakistan recently hosting Sri Lanka in a historic T20I game at the Gaddafi; the first time in eight years that a Test-playing team toured Pakistan since the Sri Lankan bus was attacked way back in 2009.

Concerns emerging over security can put a spanner in all the work that has been done by the PCB in a bid to help cricket return.
