He then became a fixture in the England side for four years, making four centuries in all and averaging more than 43. Pullar did well against South Africa (South Africa national cricket team) at home series of 1960, following a solid winter tour of the West Indies (British West Indies) where he played in all five tests against a bowling attack including Wes Hall, Garfield Sobers and Charlie Griffith who had his debut in the fifth test. He had a good tour to India and Pakistan in 1961-62, and topped the batting averages despite bagging a pair in the first Test in Pakistan. His highest Test score was 175 against the South Africans (South Africa national cricket team) at The Oval in 1960, when he put on 290 for the first wicket with Colin Cowdrey. He had modest success against the Australians (Australia national cricket team) in 1961, when Davidson snared him five times, and Pullar only played twice against Pakistan in England in 1962, scoring only 27 runs in two knocks while others, notably Peter Parfitt, scored freely against a moderate attack. After the tour to Australia in 1962-63 (1962-63 Ashes series), during which he fell ill with pleurisy, Pullar lost his England place and never regained it. Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), an organisation affiliated with al-Qaeda, is alleged to have carried out the bombing. The al-Qaeda link has been backed by Indonesia's Minister of Defense, Matori Abdul Djalil who said the Marriott bombers had trained with al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan. ''"Each one of them has special abilities received from training in Afghanistan and Pakistan,"'' Matori Abdul Djalil said on 11 August 2003. He also claimed that the bombers were linked to a group of people arrested in the eastern Indonesian town of Semarang during July 2004 and are alleged to be members of Jemaah Islamiah. *Rusman Gunawan alias "Gun Gun" was sentenced in October 2004 to four years jail for ''facilitating and aiding terrorism''.

Pakistan

'''Pakistan''' ( coastline along the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by India to the east, Afghanistan to the west, Iran to the southwest and China in the far northeast. It is separated from Tajikistan by Afghanistan's narrow Wakhan Corridor in the north, and also shares a marine border with Oman.

The territory that now constitutes Pakistan was previously home to several ancient cultures (History of Pakistan#Prehistory), including the Mehrgarh of the Neolithic and the Bronze Age Indus Valley Civilisation, and was later home to kingdoms ruled by people of different faiths and cultures, including Hindus, Indo-Greeks (Indo-Greek Kingdom), Muslims (Muslim conquest in the Indian subcontinent), Turco-Mongols (Timurid dynasty), Afghan (Afghan (ethnonym))s and Sikhs. The area has been ruled by numerous empires and dynasties, including the Indian Mauryan Empire, the Persian Achaemenid Empire, Alexander of Macedonia (Alexander the Great), the Arab Umayyad Caliphate, the Mongol Empire, the Mughal Empire, the Durrani Empire, the Sikh Empire and the British Empire (British Raj). As a result of the Pakistan Movement led by Muhammad Ali Jinnah and the subcontinent (Indian Subcontinent)'s struggle for independence, Pakistan was created in 1947 as an independent nation for Muslims from the regions in the east and west of Subcontinent where there was a Muslim majority. Initially a dominion (Dominion of Pakistan), Pakistan adopted a new constitution (Constitution of Pakistan) in 1956, becoming an Islamic republic. A civil war (Bangladesh Liberation War) in 1971 resulted in the secession of East Pakistan as the new country of Bangladesh.

Pakistan is a federal (Federation) parliamentary republic consisting of four provinces and four federal territories (Administrative units of Pakistan). It is an ethnically (Ethnic groups in Pakistan) and linguistically (Languages of Pakistan) diverse country, with a similar variation in its geography (Geography of Pakistan) and wildlife (Fauna of Pakistan). A regional (Regional power) and middle power, Pakistan has the seventh largest standing armed forces (List of countries by number of troops) in the world and is also a nuclear power (Nuclear power in Pakistan) as well as a declared nuclear-weapons (List of states with nuclear weapons) state, being the only nation in the Muslim world, and the second in South Asia, to have that status. It has a semi-industrialised economy (Economy of Pakistan) with a well-integrated agriculture sector (Agriculture in Pakistan), its economy is the 26th largest (List of countries by GDP (PPP)) in the world in terms of purchasing power and 45th largest (List of countries by GDP (nominal)) in terms of nominal GDP and is also characterized among the emerging and growth-leading economies of the world.

The post-independence history of Pakistan has been characterised by periods of military rule, political instability and conflicts with neighbouring India (Indo-Pakistani wars and conflicts). The country continues to face challenging problems, including overpopulation (Human overpopulation), terrorism (Terrorism in Pakistan), poverty (Poverty in Pakistan), illiteracy (Education in Pakistan#Literacy rate), and corruption (Corruption in Pakistan).
