p r sharma | 6 years ago | Reply @Shakil: - if there is no security threat then why other cricket teams like Australia, New Zealand, England, or South Africa is not visiting Pakistan. The culprits of attack on SriLankan team could not be traced and brought to book by pak police. Sorry security situation has not improved yet in Pakistan.
