India urges ICC to hold Champions Trophy in Pakistan

Thursday, July 3, 2008

The Indian Cricket Board has urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to hold the Champions Trophy in Pakistan.

The board said that even if there were any security risks in Pakistan then it may be delayed rather than changing its venue.

The ICC has to finally decide this week in its executive board meeting in Dubai that whether the Champions Trophy should be held in Pakistan or in any other country.

Sri Lanka and South Africa are being considered as the substitute venue but ICC president Ray Maley has recently declared at the ICC Trophy ceremony in Lahore that the security situation and organizing matters in Pakistan are quite satisfactory.

Now, India supporting Pakistan has also issued an statement that the Champions Trophy should not be shifted anywhere from Pakistan.
