Geoff Lawson apparently wants to spread cricket to new locations

To former Pakistan coach Geoff Lawson, cancelled tournaments, depressed economies and a fearful public equals only one thing: the terrorists win.

"And do it easily. The big picture is, if you continue to not go to these places to play sport - particularly cricket in central Asia - that's a total capitulation to terrorism," Lawson states.

The former Test star recently returned home from a two-year stint in charge of Pakistan, where he witnessed how foreign cricket teams abandoning tours led to not only upset fans but a downcast society in general.
