Champions Trophy year delay

The ICC announced over the weekend that the ICC Champions Trophy will be delayed by at least a year but the event will still be held in Pakistan.

That in itself is good but what I don't understand is what makes them think that the same security concerns will be gone in a year's time.

At the moment General Pervez Musharraf has just resigned and I assume there must be some tensions in the country because of that and I think that the ICC hopes that next year it will all be good.

Its good also to see that the ICC has mentioned that the location could be moved if the security concerns persist. I think that will be better than yet another delay.

Next year England will host the 20Twenty Championships and with the addition of the Champions Trophy it looks like an already busy calendar for the teams.

I hope that the tournament will go ahead as now scheduled and that all teams will participate because I think it will be good for the Pakistani fans.
