After the terror attack on the Sri Lankan team, Wasim Akram said hosting the 2011 World Cup is a 'distant dream.'

The former skipper said the attacks were "unwarranted and have put Pakistan to shame".

"I don't know who has done this but any attack on our guests is simply uncalled for. I hope the terrorists are caught and punished. They can't be Pakistanis," Akram added.
