What's to see?

A story on how the Indian security detail inspected Pakistan venues has this interesting bit in it:
Even without inspecting the stadium, the Indian delegation, visiting Pakistan to assess security arrangements for Team India's forthcoming tour, has given the go-ahead to Peshawar to host one of the five ODIs between India and Pakistan on February 8.
The five-member recce team led by Yashovardhan Azad, after discussing security measures with the provincial police and local administration yesterday, decided that the arrangements were ''good enough'' to give the green signal to the Indian team to play the match at the Arbab Niaz Cricket Ground.
''We do not need to visit the stadium to assess the security measures. Last time we inspected the ground and its surroundings and I hope the security will remain the same for the upcoming Indian cricket team's tour to Peshawar,'' Azad said.

Leads naturally to the question -- why inspect any of the venues?
