Security Issues

Post by Kopje » Mon Dec 10, 2007 4:32 pm

West Indies just toured Zim and left without a scratch or a security threat, i don't see why England, Aussie and New Zealand can't tour. As long as you stay out of trouble and politics, your stay in Zim is guranteed to be peaceful, its different from places like Pakistan where you get suicide bombers and militias in some parts of the country. If they insist on neutral venues, places like South Africa, Dubai and India will do.

You are the one taking it too personal. Did i say anyone was killed? Did i say anyone was attacked? I am just commenting on some events which happened in some parts of the country, i didnt say the whole damn place is dangerous. Read and understand before you quote other people!

Going to lock this bit before it gets too inflammatory. I'll settle for pointing out that there are a number of countries on the cricketing circuit apart from Zimbabwe where security issues could be raised if sides wanted to be picky, but that in all cases the relevant boards have the local knowledge and security staff to make sure that nothing has ever happened to touring sides. As such, "security issues" tends to be a euphemism for "we don't like you / your government" - but that's sport these days.

Locked.
