International cricket in 2008–09

The 2008–09 international cricket season was between September 2008 and March 2009.[1] The season saw the security concerns for cricket in Pakistan reach a pinnacle. The ICC Champions Trophy, scheduled to be held in Pakistan in September 2008, was postponed to 2009 after five of the participating nations refused to send their teams for the event.[2] In November 2008, a Pakistani militant group launched terror attacks in Mumbai.[3] This led to India cancelling their tour of Pakistan originally scheduled for January and February 2009.[4] Sri Lanka agreed to tour Pakistan in place of India but the tour was jeopardised by a terror attack in Lahore where gunmen fired at a bus carrying the Sri Lankan team, injuring six members of the team.[5] The Champions Trophy was later relocated to South Africa and no international cricket has been played in Pakistan since.[6]
