International cricketers body worried about situation in terror-hit IndiaDecember 6th, 2008 - 3:02 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, Dec.6 (ANI): The Federation of International Cricketers Association says the terror attacks in Mumbai have turned India into a risky place and it is planning to hold a security summit to discuss the volatile situation there.
Its a whole new world of risk in India now, that rather than having these random bombings of random places, they are targeting western (interests), the Dawn quoted FICA CEO Tim May, as saying.
Obviously it is a relatively volatile sort of landscape at the moment. The overwhelming direction that is coming through from players is that they totally understand how important it is for cricket to continue to be played in the subcontinent, and that is not from a selfish point of view in terms of player wages, it is also about the whole game.
May said the lure of playing in the cash-rich Indian leagues would always draw players to India and therefore it was imperative to address the security issues. (ANI)
