Imran Khan fears trouble ahead for Pakistan cricket

Cricket legend Imran Khan Monday said he feared more trouble for Pakistan cricket after the Champions Trophy postponement, saying the country is run by the wrong people who are destroying everything.

“The postponement of Champions Trophy is a body blow to Pakistan but since the country is run by wrong people I see more trouble for cricket in the country,” he told AFP.

On Sunday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) put off September’s Champions Trophy until next year after South Africa pulled out and Australia, New Zealand and England were due to follow suit. The four nations were reluctant to tour Pakistan over security fears after a series of blasts in the past month and political instability in the wake of president Pervez Musharraf’s resignation.

The ICC said Pakistan keeps the right to host the event, possibly in October next year, but Khan believed the present government would not be able to improve the situation in the country.
