Australia not to Tour Pakistan, says Media Report


Melbourne, Feb 19: Despite Pakistan Cricket Board's repeated assurances of players' safety, Australia are unlikely to go ahead with their scheduled tour of the troubled nation, a media report claimed here on Monday.

The Sydney Morning Herald claimed ca was almost certain to scrap the tour regardless of the situation in Pakistan after Monday's election.

The daily said CA would go by the advice of its security, which has advised the board not to send the players to Pakistan.

Of late, situation has become even worse in Pakistan and a suicide bombing at an election rally killed 46 and left more than 100 injured in the North-West town of Parachinar on Saturday.

The International Cricket Council may have to step in and the series might be played on neutral venue despite Pakistan's objections, the daily said.
