Whatmore says no security problems in Pakistan

Pakistan's cricket coach Dav Whatmore Monday voiced disappointment at Bangladesh postponing their tour, saying he had felt no security concerns during his two months in the country.

Last week Bangladesh agreed to visit Pakistan for an ODI Series and a Twenty20 international but the tour was delayed on Thursday by a Dhaka high court ruling over security fears.

Pakistan had hoped the short tour would help restore international cricket in the country, suspended in the wake of deadly terror attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009.

"Like everyone else in Pakistan, I am also disappointed" Whatmore said. "We were close to choosing the team but now Bangladesh not coming everything is finished which is a bit disappointing."

"From my personal view, having born in Sri Lanka and lived through the civil war there, and now staying in Lahore I have faced no security problems," he said.

"I have not seen very many areas in Lahore and if I know some other areas I would like to go there, but I have faced no problems here," he said.

Whatmore, 57, played 7 Tests for Australia and as coach guided Sri Lanka to their famous victory in the 1996 World Cup.

He also coached Bangladesh to the Super Six Stages of the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.

Under Whatmore, Pakistan last month won the Asia Cup, also involving world champions India.
