New Delhi, Mar 4: After Sri Lanka Cricket team was attacked by gunmen in Lahore on Tuesday, Mar 3, the big question prevails regarding the World cup 2011.

Pakistan is a co-host along with India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka for the World cup 2011. With just two years away, question raises whether any cricketer be willing to set foot in Pakistan now.

According to BCCI chief Shashank Mohan, “On the face of this attack I don't think so that any country would like to go and play in Pakistan. So, ICC will have to reconsider their decision whether to play matches in Pakistan or not."

“The biggest challenge ahead is the 2011 World Cup which we are suppose to organise with Pakistan. This terror attack will have a bad impact on the coming World Cup because the participating countries will be a bit unwilling to play in Pakistan," adds former BCCI president Sharad Pawar.

Even ICC president David Moragan is worried about the situation in Pakistan.
