Indian cricket team not touring Pakistan

Monday, February 25, 2008

Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Dr Nasim Ashraf said that the Indian cricket board (BCCI) had expressed its willingness for tour of Pakistan but it was put off after the Indian players’ refusal.

Talking with media at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, Dr Nasim Ashraf told that the PCB had invited India to play three One-day Internationals in Pakistan but the BCCI expressed its inability due to busy schedule of the Indian team.

However, it was assured that the India’s team would visit Pakistan before the Asia Cup or the Champions Trophy.

The chairman PCB said that the Indian team’s refusal would not make any difference to the Australia’s tour of Pakistan.

He said that the negotiations are in process with the Cricket Australia and it is hoped that the Australian team would tour Pakistan from March 29.

Regarding a question asked about Shoaib Akhtar, Dr Nasim Ashraf said that Shoaib’s case is with the disciplinary committee and after receiving the final report it would be presented before the Board’s next meeting.
