Unhappy with the International Cricket Council's inertia, former New Zealand stumper Adam Parore feels the 2011 World Cup should be shifted from the sub-continent without delay after players were made the target of a terrorist attack in Lahore.

"The 2011 World Cup in Asia is a dead duck - it doesn't take much analysis to quickly reach this conclusion. The
dreadful terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in Pakistan has seen to that," Parore wrote in his column for the 'New
Zealand Herald'.

"Playing cricket in the region was already seen as a major risk. Now, that risk is clearly unacceptable. The
tournament will have to be moved to somewhere because it is inconceivable that it be held in the Asian cricketing

"The ICC has taken little action yet but I'm sure it knows what the outcome must be," he said.

Parore said that not only just Pakistan, situations in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh too are not conducive for
travelling teams.

"India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka must also be regarded as too dangerous to remain as hosts for this World Cup, and as
cricket tour venues in general."
