Zimbabwe abandon, then reconsider, Pakistan tour

Zimbabwe Cricket Managing Director and head of the security delegation Alistair Campbell (right) inspects the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium with Pakistani cricket officials in Lahore on May 6, 2015Zimbabwe cricket authorities on Thursday abandoned a planned tour to Pakistan citing poor security — before retracting their decision within 20 minutes and saying discussions were still ongoing. Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) released an official statement saying the tour would not go ahead following recent militant violence that has revived fears after a deadly attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009. Pakistan has been desperate to regain its status as an international cricket venue, but security concerns rose further this week when gunmen attacked a passenger bus and killed at least 43 people in the southern city of Karachi. Zimbabwe are due to arrive on May 19 and play two Twenty20 internationals on May 22 and 24 and three one-day internationals on May 26, 29 and 31.
