LAHORE, Pakistan, (CMC) — Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron said West Indies players will get to decide whether they tour Pakistan for a series of three Twenty20 Internationals in November.

Cameron was speaking at the conclusion of the Independence Series between the Pakistanis and a World XI over the last week in Lahore.
The series has raised expectations in the country that Pakistan can resume the staging of international matches following an international suspension, due to an armed attack by militants on the Sri Lankan team bus eight years in this city.

The Pakistanis hosted Zimbabwe for a historic limited-overs series two years ago, but other internationals have been reluctant to play bilateral series in the country, forcing Pakistan to play their home games in the United Arab Emirates in the past few years.
“We want to ensure that when the players come over, everyone actually wants to come and enjoy the experience, and we don’t want to be seen to be forcing anyone,” said Cameron.

The Big Ediot

CWI has no intention of forcing any player who doesn’t wish to undertake the tour.


Shouldn't CWI meet with players first, get their approval, before
arranging the tour to Lahore?. Ah hope all say NO.

Great planning ah tell ya.

Way ta go.

Exactly... I was thinking the same thing.

These men are so unprofessional.

They arrange a tour and then they want to ask players if they will play after.

I wouldn't want to be the first team touring there but of course CWI will put their hands up.

Also, after Pakistan ran away from playing an ODI series against us to ensure they played in the Champions Trophy we shouldn't be doing them any favors.

Why, are you ready for a return to the tail wagging the dog paradigm?

This Pakistan tour thing is not new. CWI wanted Pakistan to play T20s in Florida during the recent Caribbean tour. Pakistan said it would only agree to play in Florida if CWI agreed to play games in Pakistan later in the year. The WI players (WIPA) refused to agree to the Pakistan Tour, and the T20s were played in the Caribbean.

I suspect the PCB has now given Dave a bag of goodies to offer the WI players to change "no" to "yes" smile

Dave must be hedging his prospect of the players acceptance on the highly successful (no reported negative incidents) recently concluded ICC sanctioned International XI 'tour'.

Isn't it good fundamental business practice to get one's assets on Board before
arranging such. This way the best team can be sent.

We are speaking of T20, the Pakistan Public would love to see the best
CWI T20 team. This team is World Champs.

Now should they all decide not to go, do we send a bunch of
schoolboys to be slaughtered?.

Ah just asking?

You have to admire what Dave did here though. He traveled to Pakistan and put himself "in harm's way" to hammer home the message to WI players that Pakistan is a safe place to play international cricket.

Risky move on his part though. If the WI tour Pakistan and players are injured or killed, guess who will be blamed?

Not yet ready to say whether I agree with the BIG IDIOT's posture or not, but he can hedge that the Pakistan cricket authorities, as well as the Pakistani public, would be happy for whatever they get.

Even if the tour comes off successfully, the BIG IDIOT will be blamed for it anyway.

Courtney Brown should come out from retirement to captain the west Indies team to Pakistan which should include all of his selectors. So my team is: 1. Courtney Brown-captain, 2.Eldine Baptiste,3. Lockhart Sebastien,4.Travis Dowlin, 5. Wavel Hines 5.Dave Cameron, 6. Emmanuel Nanthan, 7. Jimmy Adams 8. Richard Pybus 9. Anthony Astaphan since he is their lawyer, and all the rest that helped Dave Cameron to destroy our cricket.

Going to Pakistan to play cricket in that environment is risky.

I cannot agree with this decision by CWI.

A touring International cricket team was targeted by terrorists in Pakistan and multiple players were shot and seriously injured. When something similar occurs in England there will be plenty reason for security concerns.

You think any player from Sri Lanka would tour Pakistan in November?

I also do hope that those who refuse to go will not be punished and banned for good. One just cannot predict these "big idiots" running our cricket.

I do not think Mr.Jimmy Adams should be included in the group of "big idiots".
