A mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan, was blown up on Friday (March 4th). At least 30 people were killed in the blast. The city of Peshawar is less than 200 kilometers from Rawalpindi. Where the first day match of the first Test between Pakistan and Australia was going on.

After 24 long years of negotiations, Australia has been persuaded to visit Pakistan. Australia had earlier refused to visit Pakistan in 2009 following a terrorist attack on Sri Lankan players. However, Cricket Australia has agreed to tour Pakistan this time as their security has been at an all-time high in recent years. 

However, as a result of such an incident at the beginning of the series, there was concern whether the Pak-Australia series was declared closed in the middle. The Daily Telegraph, meanwhile, said the Australian team had spoken to the State Department about security after the attack. The incident appears to have been the result of clashes between rival Muslim factions.

A new dilemma has arisen as a result of this bomb blast. That is the series between Pakistan and Australia.
The PSL ended in a tight security situation before Australia’s tour of Pakistan. Aussie cricketer Ben Cutting said, “The security situation here is excellent. That is why you will feel safe here. After landing at the airport in Pakistan, you will get adequate security before boarding the return flight.

However, the question now is what kind of security measures will be taken by Ajira in the country as a result of such bomb blasts. Meanwhile, the hosts took control on the first day of the first Test in Rawalpindi. Pakistan lost just one wicket for 245 runs at the end of the day relying on the great batting of Azhar and Imam. Imam-ul-Haq is unbeaten on 132 runs.
