    KARACHI: Recently crowned World Twenty20 champions the West Indies have turned down a request from Pakistan to play matches in the country due to security fears, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan said on Monday.

    Pakistan are due to host the West Indies in two Tests, five one-day and two Twenty20 internationals in September and October this year.

    Nearly all the country's home series have been played in the neutral grounds of the UAE since a 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team, but Pakistan had hoped the T20 leg of West Indies' tour could be played in Lahore.

    Khan said: “We wanted the Twenty20s to be played in Pakistan and made an effort but the West Indies Cricket Board have refused saying they have security fears, so the full series will be played in (the) United Arab Emirates.”

    The West Indies' refusal came after a suicide bomber killed 73 people in a park in Lahore on Easter Sunday last month.

    Pakistan hosted Zimbabwe for two Twenty20s and three one-day internationals in Lahore last year hoping the tour would pave the way for more international teams to visit -- a hope that has yet to be realised.

    That shows the mess that Pakistan is in! A failed state that is being run by a very political, corrupt Army and ISI that harbor good 'terrorists' in their backyard. No outsider wants to risk his life out there especially after what happened to the Sri Lankan cricket team a few years ago.
