    testing

    If India refuses to tour Pakistan for any security reason (considering they called back their junior hockey team which was visiting Pakistan for a series - or so was the news apparently), then Pakistan can say good-bye to any home series for 2009, and effectively, Pakistan can hand all of it's World Cup shared matches to whoever is next in line for the bidding of Pakistan home games. There is no way that ICC or anyone will be able to convince the countries to visit Pakistan for the World Cup.

      According to 2009 FTP schedule, here is how Pakistan is shaping up:

      January 2009
      > India in Pakistan

      February 2009
      > India in Pakistan

      July 2009
      > Pakistan in Sri Lanka (3 Tests & 5 ODIs)

      August 2009
      > Pakistan in Sri Lanka

      November 2009
      > Pakistan in Australia (3 Tests)

      December 2009
      > Pakistan in Australia

      Pakistan has no home games in 2009 (except for a "maybe" for a half-series with Australia in March-April).

      If the tour is refused, then PCB would likely to see option B and option C.

      India: Since Pakistan is not visiting India in 2009, it is likely that BCCI will propose a plan to organize the series in India. Abu Dhabi and/or ECB might push it, however, it will come down to either India or UAE.

      Abu Dhabi: Another likely venue and a strong support for both countries.

      England: Less chances. Why, because of the Stanford situation and BCCI's own IPL.

      Between India and UAE (perhaps Sri Lanka may join as one of the bidding parties), UAE is looking likely. I believe Pakistan also signed a $9 million deal with Dubai to host their home games. Correct me if this is wrong.

          Altaf said the PCB would organise the series in Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates should India refuse to tour Pakistan. "We have these three alternate venues in mind to organise the series," he said. (CricInfo)

                    Mind you it snowed here in England in May 1990, so expecting the weather to be ok for cricket in Jan/Feb is just plain wishful.

                          From BCCI's standpoint, if India refuses to tour Pakistan, they can fit the Champions League where India would have otherwise toured. This would be beneficial for all countries who are participating, the state teams won't be put to lose millions and the chance of being dethroned if there are new state champions.

                          If England's current tour goes ahead, BCCI can still refuse to come to Pakistan and stage the Champions League in that timeframe. Ejaz Butt has already hinted that it will increase the tension between the two countries. Waiting to see what happens.

                            DB, it wont be that easy even if India cancels the Pakistan tour. Australia will be busy with Saffies during the entire month of January. During the same time Australia and South African domestic T20 tournament will be taking place which will be keeping Victoria, Western Australia, Titans and Dolphins, the 4 particpants of Champions League T20, busy.

                            It's a pretty complicated situation for BCCI. Things will become even more complicated if they can't find a window for Champions League before South African and Australian doemstic T20 championships. Imagine if one of the four teams or for the sake of making things more complicated, all of the four teams (Western Australia, Victoria, Titans, Dolphins) fail to qualify for the finals. Who will partcipate from South Africa and Austrlia in the Champions League T20??

                            Of the possible solution of all these problems could have been a change of venue, for instance england. However practically speaking there is no time left to implement such an option.
