Otherwise persuaded?

How do we 'otherwise persuade' someone?


"Our position is that the tour is going ahead unless we are otherwise persuaded," Peter Young, Cricket Australia's general manager of public affairs, told Cricinfo. "Our advice is there are some concerns and to exercise caution, but currently they do not compromise the tour. Our plan is to depart on September 21 subject to our advice."


In this case, a couple of bombs should do the trick.

Wouldn't cash from another source (ie. not from India) also persuade them otherwise :)

It is a possibility, but can anyone out bid BCCI?

There is no way Oz will back out.. Not even any number of bombs.. unless someone decides to blast away the head quaters of BCCI itself...

twisted talk that. heard it thru the pak episode when it was baseless, and now here we go again.
Why can't they leave it at we want to play and we don't want to play. we'll be persuaded.
