Dhaka: A three-member Asian Cricket Council (ACC) delegation will visit India next week to persuade New Delhi to rethink its team's cancelled tour of Pakistan, Bangladesh's cricket chief said on Tuesday.Saber Hossain Chowdhury told AFP that he would lead the team, which included Sri Lankan Cricket Board president Thilanga Sumathipala and Tunku Imran, chairman of the Malaysian Cricket Association."It will be in the first week of December, but an exact date is yet to be settled," he said. The team would hold talks with India's Sports and Youth minister Uma Bharati and Foreign minister Jaswant Singh, he said.According to the International Cricket Council (ICC) schedule, India are due to tour Pakistan next month to play three Test matches and five One-day Internationals.However, India earlier this month cancelled the tour as a result of continuing tensions over the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir, which is claimed by both countries. The ICC threatened to disqualify India if they do not go ahead with the tour."The Indian government took the decision in their own perspective, but our responsibility is to make them understand about the future of Asian cricket and it's development around the region," Chowdhury said.AFP
