Srilankan Lions return home as frightened cats

Arjuna Ranatunga's batch of Lions went to Pakistan without heeding to advice of other ICC members. They were shown the taste of pakistan by twelve foolish militants who fired at their bus. Within minutes the lions shed their pride and return as cats and kittens. Fear and panic was largely written on every srilankan cricketer's face. Almost everyone had missed death by a whisker.

It is widely accepted that Pakistan is not a safe place. But what came as a surprise was the attack in Lahore, which was supposedly safer than many places in Pakistan. This clearly shows that even with a strong military, the actual control of the state doesn't rest with the government. With 45% of the country is out-of the state's control (Baluchistan, SWAT valley, NWFP), it is high-time international community steps in and appoints a government before the entire collapses
