New Delhi: India on Tuesday dismissed reports that the cancelled Indian cricket team's tour of Pakistan was still on saying there was no proposal to review its decision not to play. Reacting to reports from Islamabad that the cancelled tour was likely to be revived, an external affairs ministry spokesman 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.
