A strange reluctance

Of late, a new trend has emerged that of countries refusing to tour despite the lack of security concerns.

Take the proposed tri-series involving Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa. If initially, the uncertainty was due to Sri Lanka Cricket asking for a huge sum of money, South Africa put the final nail in the coffin by pleading inability to stage it.
The proposed four-nation Twenty20 event in Canada seems to be suffering the same fate. Initially, the very conduct of the tournament was in doubt and now that it appears all is set to hold it from October 10-13, the West Indies have backed out.
This reluctance to play is perplexing because no valid reason or explanation is given.

Wonder, why countries are playing coy.
