Pak­istan foray ruled out

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT - RUS­SELL GOULD

GOV­ERN­MENT ad­vice to avoid travel to Pak­istan be­cause of a “high” ter­ror­ist at­tack risk has prompted Cricket Aus­tralia to rule put a one-day se­ries there in late March.

Of­fi­cials from the Pak­istan Cricket Board are con­tin­u­ing to hold out hope that CA will send a team to re­ceive pre­sen­ta­tions on se­cu­rity plans.

The PCB said they were still await­ing a re­sponse to a let­ter sent on Jan­uary 7 to CA.

Aus­tralia has not played in Pak­istan for 20 years, and CA has al­ready made its po­si­tion clear to the PCB.
