Some time last month, my friend Faras messaged me from London that he will be coming down to Karachi to watch the first Test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. I thought he was crazy and pulled his leg to no end after the run fest that test match turned out to be. His argument for traveling thousands of miles to come witness the test was simple. He said that it would probably be the last series to be played on Pakistani soil and he would want to tell his children that he was part of that historic event. Never more prophetic words were spoken. After the firing incident that happened earlier today in which Sri Lankan captain Mahila Jayawardene, along with few others were injured, no one in their mind would visit Pakistan. Karachi test was perhaps the last completed test played on Pakistani soil.
Welcome terrorism, adieus cricket.
