The Sri Lankans were not even meant to be in Pakistan, being there only because the Indian team had withdrawn from a tour in the wake of the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Something about this sentence makes me inherently view it as POV. The fact whether the team was supposed to be or not supposed to be in Pakistan shouldn't be a viewpoint in concern of Wikinews. The team decided to go for the tour, and quotes like these just don't prove what they're trying to say.

Let's take it from a different angle for instance; suppose that the Sri Lankan team tour to Pakistan was successful, and we were writing an article on it. Would that quote still be there? It seems more likely that this has been written in blunt frustration Ali Rana (talk) 02:37, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
