Australia Reluctant about Pakistan Tour

You already know that Pakistan is not the host of ICC Champions Trophy 2009 anymore as ICC has recently made it clear that Champions Trophy this year is not going to take place in Pakistan who were due to organize the tournament last September before ICC postponed the tournament upon receiving complains about the security condition in Pakistan from a number of test playing countries. Now, Australia is reluctant to visit Pakistan on security ground. Last year, Australia refused a pre-scheduled tour of Pakistan following a series of bomb blasts in the country. Recently, PCB officials met Cricket Australia (CA) officials and discussed about the possible neutral venues including UAE, Malaysia, Ireland and England. It is expected that Pakistan and Australia will face each other in an ODI series on a neutral venue in April this year. The test series will be held in 2010.
