View Full Version : ICL World Series called off

November 27, 2008, 06:47 AM
The terror attacks in Mumbai have forced the cancellation of the ongoing ICL world series in Ahmedabad, a senior official confirmed. ICL representatives met Gujarat government officials over the future of the tournament following Wednesday's terror strikes (http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/india/content/current/story/379813.html) in Mumbai, and later decided to call off the event.

"We have decided to cancel the World Series in the best interests of all involved, particularly the teams," Kiran More, an executive board member of the ICL, told Cricinfo. "The executive board decided that it was not appropriate to continue. We were ready with the extra security but felt the atmosphere, in the wake of the Mumbai events, was just not right to go ahead with the matches."

The ICL had on Thursday morning decided to call off the evening's match between Pakistan and Bangladesh teams in Ahmedabad. The world series, involving India XI, Pakistan XI, Bangladesh XI and World XI, was scheduled to end on Saturday.

It was inevitable; but they could probably shift the date in stead of calling it off.

Another victim of terrorism. Terrorists main goal is to disrupt our lives. Only they know what twisted satisfaction they get from their cowardly attacks on innocent civilians. It sure isn't the way to heaven.

This was the right decision. Unfortunate, but still the right decision.

Obviously .....if the whole series is called off, there wont be any finals.

BTW I think it was a right decision to take, at least ICL takes good care of their players, unlike BCB.
