A year on from cricket's most shocking and deadly event, match-referee Chris Broad, who survived the harrowing Lahore terror attack, said the sport's hierarchies cannot afford to become complacent regarding security. If they slack in their efforts, Broad fears the terrorists will return.

Broad, 52, was caught in the now infamous terrorist ambush on March 3 last year, when the match officials' bus and that of the Sri Lanka team, en route from their hotel to the Gaddafi Stadium was shot at by masked gunmen. The driver of Broad's vehicle was killed and reserve umpire Ahsan Raza took a bullet, but has now recovered. Several Sri Lanka players were injured in the attack. Broad later said that the passengers in his bus were left "like sitting ducks" and he felt let down by security that had been assured them.

"The third of the third '09 will be with me until I die," Broad told Cricinfo. "It was an unhappy day, not only for me but for the rest of the playing control team over there and the Sri Lankan team. It will be cricket's 9/11. It was a sad day for us and for Pakistan as a country because they wouldn't have wanted anything to happen to foreigners but that's the problem they have at the moment."

While Pakistan are now forced to play their home matches overseas because of that attack and frequent bombings throughout the country, the rest of the cricket world is also now more vigilant than ever to possible attacks.

This month's IPL is set to go ahead in India, after organisers opted to take the event to South Africa last season because of lack of adequate security due to a clash with the country's general elections. This third season, though, has not been without player security fears.

"I'm encouraged by the way that the boards I have dealt with (since) have acted regarding security," Broad said. "I was in India in October-November and they had certainly changed their attitudes regarding security not only for players but for officials also. The concern is that we don't want those attitudes to relax as that is the time when the terrorists would strike.

"Hopefully the boards will continue to improve what we have in place now and ensure that all people involved in international cricket are safe and secure. I say that only because I don't want the terrorists to beat us."

Broad does not know if he would ever return to Pakistan and said he would need to have all the facts regarding security, if international cricket were to return there in his time as a match official. He does, though, have sympathy for the country's plight and that of the cricket board. Ironically, having visited Pakistan as player and official, the ill-fated visit was his most enjoyable one until the attack.

"I have been to Pakistan four or five times and it was one of the most enjoyable tours I've ever had there. The organisation had been very good and socially it was very acceptable as there were more restaurants opening up, the cleanliness within the country was improving. It was a very enjoyable time and it's just terrible that was soured by what happened.

"It's going to be difficult to overcome because terrorism in the world seems to have a foothold. But we have to support the Pakistan people and cricketers as much as we can, though unfortunately, at this moment in time, it's difficult to take [international] cricket back to that country. It's something that is very sad but very true.

"The main issue is they have got to sort out these bombings and terror attacks within their own country. I know it is not the Pakistan Cricket Board's responsibility but it is something that needs to be done and the wider community has to help as much as it can. Otherwise it would be extremely sad to see cricket die in that country."

So, on the anniversary of the attack, does Broad still have nightmares? He revealed in an interview last year that he suffered flashbacks in a cinema on hearing gunshots in a movie.

"Time is a great healer, I don't think about it too often these days but the memories are always going to be with me. The memories are still extremely vivid and they are memories I wish I had never had.

"Cricket has not only changed dramatically since I was an England player [in the 1980s], so much has changed in terms of security just in the seven years I have worked for the ICC. It's a different world to when I was a player."

@shahidmahmood What do u mean by saying that india r tryin to destroy cric in pakistan,This shows your ignorance it is india vs pak matches that generate most income in both the countries and in fact v all love following pakistan cricket and many indians here love pak players playing , bcoz they r interesting..and by the way wat profit does bcci get by making pak cricket die..such rubbish comments shouldnt even be posted...... infact if u ask any foreign player whether he wil play in pak they would say no bcoz of security conditions... not bcoz BCCI TOLD HIM TO SAY THAT. Please understand that and wat do u mean by hiding the truth??????? if truth is hidden how come u say that u know it???????? WHAT U R SAYING IS UTTER SPECULATION AND TRYING TO MAKE IT APPEAR AS A TRUTH

Posted by Nnskrish on (March 4, 2010, 12:09 GMT)

@aztecs What nonsense are u talking on this blog this is a cricketing website so just limit your comments to it, y do u talk abt your politicians ineffeciency and blahblahblah.....and y do u blame India for eveything and y are u concerned abt security in India if anyone had any doubts abt security in INDIA no one would come here so that they can pocket a few more bucks, the players from nations like England,Aussies , S.A and Sri lanka(They are the ones touring india mostly) are rich enough not to risk their lives for money and infact security conditions are much ,much better than in pakisthan for sure ....So ppl come on there is no point in saying that INDIA is paying more or bribing them.

mkul822, youre talking rubish! india are doing what ever it takes to destroy pakistani cricket and it is a well known fact. who ever does not admit it is hiding the truth from public PERIOD.

Posted by mpcobra on (March 3, 2010, 22:10 GMT)

Either this should be prank or some kind of a child joke that india is behind attacks on srilankan team in pak and stopping all progress for pak. First of all I am an indian and luv cricket like crazy like any other fans here.BCCI is definetly a big head in making decisions in ICC. But that doesn't mean BCCI didnot encourage pak cricket. REMEMBER BCCI when it intiated so many unrelated series at the time when india was at war front with Pak. BCCI does this solely for PCB and BCCIs fan base and even after so many useless series with PAK so that PCB can gain some revenue PCB always points at BCCI who for there part done nothing for PCB cricket but expect favours from BCCI and ICCI. Likes of current PCB admin have created bad taste w.r.t world cricket they just want to get compensated for games they don't host in WC but don't want to create oppurtunities. Only sympathy i have is for Pak players who were left out of IPL by "clubs" in captalistic world its common but bad for cricket!!

My dear friend, getting a hoax call and having a terrorist attack the van your in are two different things. FYI : The ICC has not BANNED cricket matches in pakistan, no team wants to tour pakistan.

Posted by jeromedascorp on (March 3, 2010, 21:35 GMT)

Here we go again. Just like every article out there and every youtube video. If its something to do with India or Pakistan the idiots come out to bash the other country. First of all some facts. We should not compare security between the two countries because both countries are a joke in terms of security. Take a look at the police in the developed nations and look at our south asian police. I bet you in India, Pakistan, or any South Asian nation for that matter, any terrorist can pay off a policeman so that they can carry out their attacks. So stop bashing each others' countries and try to do something about getting rid of corruption all across south asia. Once corruption goes believe me, we will see a much more fit and trust worthy police force across south asia. Then all of our conflicts will be solved and people will actually trust the authorities and not have to constantly fend for themselves.

Cont..We are proud of our nation and always will be. Yes, we are going through a tough time and we will learn and will put it right... we will always aspire to be the best or try our hardest to do our best and we dont need people like Chris Broad to re assure us or the world on how great our country is or isnt, we know it is. Our ill elected politicians and administration have tainted our wonderful hard fought country costing almost 800,000 lives is injustice to all those people. Its time that Pakistanis realized who we really are and stopped entertaining the ill minded who will always kick the ladder of opportunity and expose our weaknesses but will always fail to acknowledge their own. Its time we stopped being soft targets and stop peering over the fence to see what our neighbors are upto and really work on our own infrastructure to get our country back on its track. Leave our neighbors to do the spying and let them indulge in their own envy, we dont care. Its time to get back up!

Fabian julian shut the hell up we were never one we will never be one pakistan zindabad

Posted by smfasih on (March 3, 2010, 19:31 GMT)

Fabian, with all due respect to your beliefs, we are both not one nation. We are two separate nations. Those who believe in the unity of the two nations ignore the fact that in that case one nation will have to be subservient to the other. India is just relishing the fact that for the first time they are one up on Pakistan.

To all India bashers - do visit the below links to find the comments of Pakistani players about security in India.

It is an insane thing to compare India and Pakistan. India is a rising world power in all spheres. Visit the below link to see how India has risen of ages. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbIXYEW9CSQ

To someone who claims that Pakistanis might be foolish to let terrorism grow at their backyard.I would want to ask if Pakistan has the will to get over it completely? Does Pakistan not use it as a tool even today to achieve its Kashmir aspirations by spawning terrorism across the border? For that matter, has any progress been made on uncovering the attacks on Srilankan team?

Jealousy on the growing might of India is understandable!

dear Brothers................please stop talking and let's put our human minds to work and find out a good solution for the only one long standing common enemy by name "Terrorists". Peace

Posted by   on (March 3, 2010, 18:38 GMT)

Dear brothers.... People in both nations always share a common bloodline... Do you remember we are one Nation... We had one thought.. Though we are separated by names called India or Pakistan we are always ONE. Our spirits.. Our thoughts... Our hearts still seek each other in some way or the other. Sad!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We accuse ourselves... Let us think to act as humans... Let's be united... If there is a problem for our brothers and sisters in pakistan lets support them geniunely and find out a solution.. Cricket is just a sport .. there are innumerable problems in both nations...if we fight within ourselves remember always we are degrading ourselves and letting someone in who will enjoy everything leaving us nothing... Hope you all understand.. God Bless. Peace.

Well the security is going to be an important factor in South Asia, be it India, Pakistan or Bangladesh. It is high time when we all stop getting emotional about white skins lamenting the situation. If some thing is mentioned about India, Pakistanis get ultra emotional for no reason, same thing goes for Indians. Let us realize that we are all in same boat now. I am sure no true Pakistan citizen will want to support terrorism in any part of the world, be it India or America. There is a section of people in both the countries which will keep on doing what they are born to do! Let us stop bashing each other in public forums and limit our discussion to the topic. Indians may hate Pakistan or Pakistanis may hate India but the fact remains that we will stay side by side for centuries to come. So guys, pull up and contribute some great things to this great website. For haters there are many forums where they can give way to their frustration and vent their anger freely.

But I agree somewhat to Mr. Broad that we should have taken responsibilities, when responsibilities are given to the people who aren't capable, than how can we stop Indians [who do not let their chances] and other to point fingers on us!

Posted by   on (March 3, 2010, 15:20 GMT)

and FYI to all those who are wobbling that "Indians" are able to settle security, they should add, with putting all the mess onto Pakistan. Even Election campaigns in India a surrounded with the Pakistan Card that we'll do this and that to Pakistan. 3rdly on 3rd March 2009 prime-time, an Indian News Channel stated that their [terrorists] attire was much similar to that of the one we [the news man] saw on the eve of Mumbai attacks [drama]. Now one should understand whose after whom, instead of saying we're better. With respect to Mahatma Gandhi, don't overshadow Mr. Jinnah's contribution in the partition of South Asia, and keep your home free from the Naxalites and stop capturing a state of China in India because peace loving countries don't do such things. Peace!

What can I say! Some people here do forget that there was a time when PCB was a powerhouse in South Asia and at that time, these people who are wobbling this and that were under us, and why putting your mess under the carpet when some facts were evolved in some of the blogs regarding status of terrorists transferring from Afghanistan to Pakistan, even their Nationality which were caught(and not verbally but physical proves) was exposed but thanks to the money power that those blogs were disabled. This is a sporting site else I'd have shown those and more pictures of "Indian Terrorists" with love from Afghanistan.

Majority of the users have objected Shahidmahmood, the way he expressed himself is somewhat unacceptable. However at the same time Omer Siallion's and aztec's comments have been overlooked, anyone with an educated guess would ponder over their thoughts. Lets considerthe basic economics rule, isn't it true that BCCI will profit the most from the the Lahore attacks? Furthermore PCB has suffered a great financial loss due to that mishap. BCCI is a giant in ICC and the rule of thumb is that revenue dictates terms of a business entity. If a matter, reasonable or not, does not coincide with BCCI then all hell breaks loose, ever wonder why? Whoever is involved in inhumane acts, I hope, comes across justice soon, because targetting innocent people is a cowardly act, irrespective of race, creed, nationality etc. There is no doubt that India is much safer, they are growing, but that also means they would have influence, they should use this authority for safety measures for global cricket.

Posted by Kurapati on (March 3, 2010, 14:42 GMT)

HEHE! @Shahidmahmood & Siallion, I don't understand how would somebody just back Pakistan up on hosting matches in Pakistan!!If they just said by not knowing the situation then its OK but if not they are just out of their mind!Comparing India to Pakistan is just ridiculous as Pakistan doesn't deserve to be the hosting country for Cricket, What a shame that was.. terrorist attack on sportsman? People stopped thinking about your country Pakistan and where is the question of visiting and playing cricket there, FORGET IT, it's just not gonna happen not in near future but forever. And coming to India, we had the best security available, GOVT is giving Z level to all the officials and players and apart from that IPL itself is giving security. So NOW just stop dreaming or atleast thinking about comparing INDIA to Pakistan as its just wasting your valuable time. Pakistan will never be a safest to play any sport. Felt sad when i hear somebody comparing INDIA to that country, GOD SAVE CRICKET

Posted by aztecs on (March 3, 2010, 13:43 GMT)

To Chaudry Apan, how educated are you??? By the sounds of your comments it doesnt sound as if you are well informed at all. And that goes for the rest of you anti Pakistanis, your all ill informed. India has far worse problems than Pakistan, the problem with Pakistan is that it doesnt have the same buying pwer as India which is why it is readily exposed. Do you honestly think we encourgae our country to a road of self destruction!!! Do you honestly think we enjoy be given the cold shoulder by the cricketing world!!!! Do you honestly think any true pakistani will encourage terrorism or unstability in their own back yard!!! Come on, we all know from the moment Pakistan won its independence from India, its agenda has been out to destroy Pakistan. And it has become so apparant that you call us cry babies, shame on you!!! You havent got a clue of what your goverment is up to have you, blinded by patroitism and bollywood veerism, read about tipu sultan and you will know your history!

Mr shahidmahmood .. Dont compare India with pakistan on security .. India is miles better.. You are only frustrated because neither any team wants to come to pakistan nor any pakistan player is wanted because of you PCB . Champions league is domestic event of BCCI , CA , CSA and people were more than willing to come India.. As it is happening now.. Improve your country image first and stop supporting terrorism to India .. Then all countries will come to play cricket on your home turf .. Stop talking ..Start doing

Posted by   on (March 3, 2010, 12:37 GMT)

ya thats true..india should be kicked out from playing international cricket....cuz tehy r not gud enough

Posted by Happpy on (March 3, 2010, 12:37 GMT)

Broad said: "it's difficult to take [international] cricket back to that country". I think he shouldn't say this because anything can be happen at any time. Pakistan is struggling to finish Terrorism in the country. So a day will come when Pakistan will be safe. So cricket can be started there at any time.

Broad also must remember that some police men lost their lives to save him. So he should try to forget this incident instead of getting scare in front of TV. He should know that some families lost their papa, husband and brother etc. So those families are also living without scare.

I appreciate his comments about Pakistan where he praised Pakistan places etc. But a message for Broad is that we all together can struggle to save Pakistan Cricket.

what rubbish! Shahid... u guys cannot handle terror in you own house, that does not mean everyone else is useless...

India is the land of Mahatma Gandhi... the man of peace... and even Pakistan owes their freedom to him... so please stop accusations and provide some useful feedback...

Posted by sal80 on (March 3, 2010, 11:57 GMT)

In pakistan it is sum thing sad to see that there is no international cricket has been played from long time and due to no cricket the effects on pak cricket are emminent like frequent changes of capatian , coaches , selectors & other changes and with all this mess the standard of cricket and may be love for game is going down as pakistani i feel this a lot But what Mr Broad has said is not wrong it is 9/11 for cricket but the most devesting thing that had happen is the cancelation of WC 2011 from pakistan and specialy on the other hand all the matches shifted to india which is the great blow to pak cricket and people, but this also shows the double standards for pak not for any other nation by ICC..

Typical crybaby comment, expected...Blaming even climatic changes in Pakistan on India...Haha..

I think Shahid is ignorant or making himself fool. Everyone know where the terrorist coming. Make ur country safe first then talk about India. Indian people never support any form or terrorist. We never support good terrorist or bad terrorist. Cricket is not game in India, its every day life here. So, before giving lecture on India make ur facts correct.

Posted by BapiDas on (March 3, 2010, 11:42 GMT)

ICC can do nothing to ban or bar the Champions League in India because that tournament is a 'domestic' torunament hoted by the IPL

Posted by   on (March 3, 2010, 11:27 GMT)

I agree Shahid for their right to host matches in their home turf. But dont agree regards to bombing- In India we dont come across more bombing as pakistan does, as we dont encourage home grown terrorist as it is headache to own home, and India is safer destination, until someone from outside encourage or come and does. We are proud to be an Indian. just see how cricketer, Azhar, Syed Kirmani, pathan's in Indian team enjoying. We Indian also wishes to play at Pakistan ground with peace and harmony- We are the world we are the children.

Posted by mkul822 on (March 3, 2010, 11:20 GMT)

Shahidmahmood, mate all I can say is...stop making excuses for Pakistan by being jeleous of what India has achieved! Without India Pakistan cricket board wouldn't survive!! In addition, the BCCI had given an olive branch during tournaments in 2007...eventhough most other countries were against going to Pak - India stood firm and said all had to go and there was no excuses! Then as always with the success of IPL Pak had to get jeloused...and rather than arguing for India they are doing exactly what you are doing that is rather than improving security in Pak and convincing the cricketing world that cricket should return in Pak, all it tries to do is discourage countries from playing in India....if you call yourself a true cricket fan...you should be ashamed of yourself! Plus you have to remember the bombing in India is from the clowns crossing the border from Pak (again probably jelousy)...where as in Pak its own the Pakis.... When will that part of the world grow some brains...honestly!

Posted by shafny on (March 3, 2010, 10:54 GMT)

What a comment .... bribe...bomb threat...and all. its rubbish. in india not any cricket team been targeted like sri lanka taem did in lahore. PAKISTAN is the country with full of faults ... no body answered y pakistani team bus left hotel late only on that date? we all think there is some kind of connection or what ever..... Match fixing....Ball tempering.... ball biting....ohhh no pakistan should be banned alltogether from cricket.

Posted by spiritwithin on (March 3, 2010, 10:52 GMT)

@shahidmahmood...india dont hav frequent bombings like in pakistan...there were just one bombing in da last 13months and in da same time pakistan had 50+...so ICC is doing da right thing by not allowing teams to visit pakistan or is it teams own decision to boycott pakistan tour??i think the 2nd option is right..the fact is there was a terrorist attack in SL team b4 that inspite of so many bombing countries were still visiting pakistan..therefore unless there's a terror attack on touring team in india nobody will boycott just bcoz of threats...

Posted by Niju_001 on (March 3, 2010, 10:49 GMT)

Its a pity that Pakistan Cricket Team and the board is unable to do anything to bring life to International cricket again in their very own home country. Pakistan is a very talented cricket team, having won the ODI world cup and the T20 world cup. Great cricketing icons like Imran khan, Javed Miandad, Zaheer Abbas, Wasim Akram to mention a few are loved by many worldwide. But unfortunately I seriously dont know whom to blame for what it is today for Pakistani cricket that even in IPL the franchisee owners have a second thought to include the champion players of T20 cricket. I also read Osman Samiuddin's There's life in Pakistan Cricket still... but I did'nt find any life there for International cricket. He has actually questioned what the PCB has devised in the past year to overcome this? Poor PCB was actually blaming Chris Broad as a lier and there was no security breach apart from the terrorist firing and injuring the players and other officials and Wasim Bari is now promoted as COO

@ Shahidmahmood

India is no comparison with Pakistan. Bomb Blasts in Pakistan have been a menace occurring with high periodicity. Cricketers had been attacked in Pakistan a year ago and the investigation over the attacks is still incomplete.

India on the other hand has been much safer with regular business on in all fields. Notwithstanding cricket alone, India is currently hosting the Hockey World cup which is to be followed by IPL only to be followed by Commonwealth games. You may want to overthrow your delusion of India bribing ICC.

The below links indicate comments made by Pakistani players and authorities about feeling safe in India.

@shahid - I can understand your anguish but you should also understand that nobody can be bribed for risking their lives knowingly. Moreover players like shane warne and symonds have also entioned that they are willing to participate and ready to play in India. There was a concern for playing in India too. But they managed to convince people. It is also a matter of convincing the board and players by showing them the improved security stuffs... I dont think anyone will be ready to lose their life for the money.. If it is the case.. then i really feel sorry for pakistan...

Posted by CricketMaan on (March 3, 2010, 10:29 GMT)

@shahidmahmood. FYI Pakistan has close to 200 bombing incidents as recently as last year to 2 compared to the 2 incidents that India had. It is not fair to compare Pakistan's state to India's. An ofcourse we are able to manage secruity to players and officials so why not use the clout. I'm a big fan of Pakistan cricket and sad to see what is happening thier, but that does not mean you can compare the situation in these 2 coutries.

Posted by aztecs on (March 3, 2010, 10:25 GMT)

I agree with Shahid mahmood, India is a growing economic force and politically very influential. Even if the situation got worse in India i.e. with the moist rebels, sikhs, kashmir, gujarat etc etc they still would not lose their right to host games The reason for this is a majority of cricket finace comes from India, and the ICC have learnt never bit the hand that feeds it. So why would India lose it rights to host games, in fact it dictates terms to the ICC. Furthermore, although many would argue its a conspiracy theory the Indian goverment have set out a clear agenda to undermine anything good coming out of Pakistan, it will do what ever to ensure Paksitan never prospers whether it be economically, politically or even sports. Its basic economics rule out any competition for self prosperity. I wouldnt even be surprised if it was the Indians who carried out the attack on the Sri Lankans. But we will see it throuugh inshallah!!!!

its true that what happened in lhe is really something awful but it can be happened anywhere and not only its my opinion but it is also the opinion of many other former cricketrs as well well as cricket lovers also for expample during the match between INDIA VS SA indian commentator and fromer player RAVI SHASTRI supported the statment of IPL commissioner LAil Modi n said dat "GOVT. is confiriming to give security to the players IPL is confirming you security and if instead of all this something bad (terrosirt attack) happen then it can be happen anywhere in this world and no 1 can stop it....." i am not here supporting the terrorist attack btu i am saying levaing paksitan in this situation you are not only aaffecting crickt but also supporting the aims n goals of these terrorists because pak is fighting war against terrosrism and pak to be alone so whole worl please try to understand today is PAKistan and tomorrow it can be ur country.....so dnt let dem do that be united n be brave

Posted by shahidmahmood on (March 3, 2010, 8:42 GMT)

Pakistan should have every right to host matches on there home turf. Frequent bombing happens in India but the bribe the ICC and still host matches. In the champions league there a bomb threat but did ICC ban India from from hosting matches, no they didn't make it a big deal at all
