    No proposal to review decision on Pak tour, says Govt

    The Government reiterated on Tuesday that there was no proposal to review its decision on the Indian cricket team's tour of Pakistan next month.

    Following reports from Islamabad that the cancelled tour was likely to be revived, Official sources when contacted said "there is no proposal at present to review the decision regarding our cricket team's tour of Pakistan".

    The Indian Government had refused permission to the Cricket Board to send a team on a tour of Pakistan as it said the atmosphere, following the Kargil war and that country's support to militants in Kashmir, was not conducive.

    The fresh round of speculation about the tour started after Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Lt Gen Tauqir Zia said in Islamabad yesterday that he had received positive signals that India could go there for a short tour next month.

    Zia said Pakistan's representative in the International Cricket Council Ehsan Mani had talked to Indian Board President A C Muthiah who told him that India was planning a short tour of Pakistan.

    The tour, comprising four Tests and five One-Dayers, was originally scheduled for December-January but was cancelled by the Indian Government citing Pakistan's support to cross- border terrorism in Kashmir.

    Uske ik ik hurf ki teh mein mein ne akser chahat ka deriya daikh..
    uski ankhon mein mein ne akser pyass ka sehra daikha..
    derd ki ruut mein kon kisi ke zakhmon pe merhum rakhta hai..
    chandni raat mein mein ne akser chand ko tanha daikha..
