Lahore: Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has said that Australia's withdrawal from the proposed tour of Pakistan was justified considering Pakistan's current security image.

"We cannot blame the Australians for the cancellation of the tour given Pakistan's current security image all over the world," he said.

he also said that Pakistan cricket will suffer due to the cancellation of the Australia"s tour.

"It will impact Pakistan cricket in a terrible way. Pakistan cricket's television rights are up for sale next month, and I fear, they will be devalued with the current scenario. Young Pakistani players will also get demotivated by this situation when no team is willing to play here," the Daily Times quoted
Ramiz, as saying.

"The practical situation is getting worse and with major cities being targeted, it is worrying for people who live outside Pakistan," he added.
