India to play in Karachi and Peshawar: Khan
Wednesday, January 21 2004 20:06 Hrs (IST)

Islamabad:Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan has said that despite the security concerns the Indian team would play both in Karachi and in Peshawar during its tour in March-April.

Shahryar said the matches would be played in Karachi and Peshawar where major touring sides have so far not played expressing apprehensions due to periodic violence.

Last year, the South African team agreed to tour Pakistan after rescheduling the matches to be held in Lahore, Faisalabad and Rawalpindi.

Shahryar also told the media that any changes in the Pakistan cricket team management or selection committee will be made within the next 10 days. He said the performance of captain, coach, manager and selection committee would be reviewed before making any changes.

The chairman expressed surprise when asked about rumours of chief selector Aamir Sohail's sacking, saying it was the press, which asked for a change. "And if we decide not to change any official, the press starts a campaign to make the change."

Shahryar said the PCB was willing to hire the services of Waqar Younis to help Shabbir Ahmed to rectify the pacer's action and disclosed that Younis was also interested to offer his services to the PCB as a bowling coach.
