Islamabad: Pakistan has dropped the idea of organising a four-nation Limited Overs cricket tournament early in 2001 due to uncertainty over India's participation.[an error occurred while processing this directive]The tournament, proposed to be jointly hosted by India and Pakistan and involving Zimbabwe and West Indies as the other teams, "Is as good as written off," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) director Brig Munnawar Rana told PTI over phone on Tuesday."It has little relevance after india decided to opt out from Asian Test Championship (ATC) in order to avoid playing Pakistan," Rana said. Zimbabwe is to tour India early next month while Pakistan will host West Indies during the same time. The four-nation tournament was conceived during the Asian Cricket Council(ACC) meeting in Lahore in May and both PCB and BCCI had agreed to host half the matches each.Rana said there was no question of cancelling the tournament since it was just a proposal. Rana, however, declined to state whether Pakistan wouldparticipate in a tri-nation tournament being planned by Bangladesh in February next year. (BCCI sources had earlier indicated that this tournament would be squeezed between December 24 and January 12 when England takes a break from its India tour to go home for Christmas and New Year)."Pakistan would tour Bangladesh early next year to play two Tests and One-day International series. Bangladesh Cricket Board has not yet informed PCB about its plans to host a triangular One-day tournament involving its team along with India and Pakistan," Rana said. PTI
