The Pakistan Cricket Board [PCB] has finally taken action and has sent ICC [International Cricket Council] a legal notice claiming that excluding them from hosting the 2011 Cricket World Cup is legally flawed. Finally the PCB grew some balls!!! I mean tell me if this makes sense; Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh were supposed the host the 2011 World Cup. Sri Lanka has a civil war going on, India always has some kind of violence going on and with 16 groups fighting to gain independence within India i don't think it'll ever stop [also has law and order problems going on that prevented the Australian tennis team from touring], Bangladesh recently faced mutiny by its armed forces and refused to host Pakistan on accounts of security concerns which resulted in cancellation of Pakistan series in Bangladesh in March, and Pakistan was stripped from hosting the world cup because of "unrest in the country". This action was clearly discriminating and another attempt to isolate Pakistan. Anyway the action is being challenged by PCB by a creditable lawyer and Inshallah victory will be ours.
