What could be the decision
The Asia Cup is to be held in Pakistan next year. But if the Indian team refuses to go to Pakistan citing security reasons, then no country can question its decision. When the team of Australia and England reached Pakistan last year, they also had to return from there due to security reasons. The New Zealand team had returned from there half an hour before the match, citing security reasons, after canceling the tour. In such a situation, if India refuses to go to Pakistan citing a security threat, then it is sure to get the support of other cricket boards.
