PCB chief refuses to comment on India tour

Lahore, Nov 30 (UNI) Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ijaz butt today refused to comment on reports that India has decided to cancel its tour scheduled to held early next year.

The tour was already under a cloud because of security concerns but the terror attacks in Mumbai has put it in serious doubt.

''Today is Sunday and a holiday, and we haven't received any formal information from the Indian cricket board (over the tour),'' Butt said.

''We will only be able to give our reaction on the issue once we receive any concrete information from India,'' he added.

Butt once again suggested that the series could be held at a neutral venue, an idea which may also be rejected.

The PCB chairman hoped that the tour will go on though he admitted that the matter was now in the hands of the two governments following the terror strikes in Mumbai.

India is due to play three Tests, five one-dayers and a Twenty20 International starting on January 5 next year.
