    Pakistan's tour opener at Dharmasala in trouble

    The scheduled tour opener against the Board President's XI at Dharmasala first got into trouble when the Dalai Lama withdrew from the inauguration of the game after the Pakistan Cricket Board expressed its unhappiness with his possible presence, on account of Pakistan's good relations with China.

    Now, the team management has questioned the choice of Dharmasala since there will be more travel and less practice before getting to Mohali for the first test. Besides, the weather has not been kind either with the possibility of a lot of play being lost due to rain, if the game starts tomorrow that is. Of course, the concern about the scheduling is a moot point since it was the PCB which agreed to the scheduling in the first place. The only concern the PCB had was about Ahmedabad. The Pakistani team and the media should stop making excuses. It is their board's incompetence which has put them in this situation.
