Karachi: In an evident shift from the earlier stand, Pakistan on Saturday relented and agreed to play against India at "any venue" including the Sharjah tournament in April 2001, media reports said. 'The news' quoted an unidentified Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official as saying that Pakistan had decided to stick to their policy of not mixing sports with politics and would be going to Sharjah as per their commitment with the Cricketers' Benefit Fund Series (CBFS). The official said Pakistan were willing to play India at any venue. "That's is why we've also agreed to play India in either Malaysia or Dhaka in a triangular series if it comes through." Earlier, Pakistan had threatened not to play in any tournament involving India following Indian government's refusal to allow its team to tour Pakistan this winter. The tri-nation Sharjah tournament, also featuring Sri Lanka, will be held from April 4 to 14 with Majid Khan and Sarfraz Nawaz as the beneficiaries from Pakistan. The PCB official also welcomed the move by the Emirates Cricket Board and the CBFS to appoint a committee to probe into allegations that Sharjah was the hub of match-fixing and betting. Abdur Rehman Bukhatir, who presides over ECB and CBFS, announced setting up of the committee two days ago, stating that the step had been taken to get Sharjah's name cleared once and for all.
