New Delhi: The government scotched speculations about a possible rethink on Indo-Pak cricket series, asserting there was no change in its decision to veto the Indian team's tour to Pakistan slated to take place from January. "There is no change in the announcement made earlier," a foreign office spokesman told reporters in response to a question. New Delhi had stated that Pakistan's hostile propaganda and constant calls for 'jihad' against India by the establishment and extremist groups had created an environment making an Indian cricket team's tour of that country "inappropriate". India had asked Pakistan to create a conducive climate, which would enable it to have the confidence that the security and welfare of its team would be ensured and that a tour would serve positive purposes. Earlier, former cricket board chief, Raj Singh Dungarpur told reporters soon after returning from Lahore that there was hope for revival of the Indo-Pak cricket series.
