news just in that the womens world cup qualifier has been moved to southafrica. the event which was originally meant to be taking place in pakistan next month has now been moved due to security reasons after the assasination of benazir bhutto.
what's interesting is that i was reading through the article and they talk about bermuda, pakistan, zimbabwe etc taking part. so i was just wondering will our baginir dhol be competing or not?:-/

I'm pretty sure our women will as they have entered some major tournaments and won. Not certain though...

Well they should definitely try at least.

Looks like we won't be competing in this one, hence more time for Panna, Champa and Chameli to get better.

Women's WC qualifiers out of Pakistan
Afp, Karachi

The International Cricket Council Tuesday announced the women's World Cup qualifying rounds have been shifted from Pakistan to South Africa on the guidance of independent security reports.

"The eight-team qualifying rounds, scheduled to be staged in Lahore, Pakistan from 18-24 February, will now take place in South Africa instead," the ICC said in a statement.

"The decision was arrived at following independent security reports and extensive discussions by ICC management and the ICC Women's Committee," said the ICC.

The tournament was to originally take place in Lahore last November but was postponed for security reasons until after the proposed election date of January 8, the ICC said.

"With the rescheduling of the elections in Pakistan until February 18, the decision was made to move the event to South Africa," the statement added.

The qualifiers involve eight teams -- Bermuda, Ireland, the Netherlands, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, South Africa, and Zimbabwe -- with the top two sides going forward to the ICC Women's World Cup in Australia in 2009.
