New Delhi:

The fifth and final one dayer between South Africa and Pakistan on October 29 has been shifted from Karachi to Lahore.

That after the suicide bomb attack on Benazir Bhutto's convoy, which killed 140 people last Thursday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board issued a statement saying that the shift has been done on the request of the South African team management.

Karachi has long been a must avoid venue for most cricket teams but this year the Proteas stayed in the port city for 10 days playing a tour game and a test match.

Earlier this year the champions trophy hockey tournament was moved out of Lahore to Kuala Lumpur because too many teams were unwilling to travel to Pakistan.
