Aus to wait and watch for Pak tour: Symonds

Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds has expressed reservations about touring Pakistan next year saying there has been a lot of ‘bombs going off’.

“There do seem to be a lot of bombs going off over there,” Symonds was quoted as saying in the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’ today.

“At the end of the day it is only a game of cricket. But I suppose being the diplomat that I am, we are going to have to wait and see when we get closer to the time, how many bombs are going off over there. But it is being bombed,” he said.

Symonds comments have cast a shadow over Australia’s three-Test tour to Pakistan in March as political uncertainty remains in the nation due to the state of emergency.

Australia’s three-Test tour of Pakistan in 2002-03 was also moved to Colombo and Sharjah because of security issues.
