Islamabad:Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan has said there was no controversy about selecting venues for the upcoming tour of India and a final decision would be taken in consultation with the hosts soon.

"The PCB and the BCCI have good relations and we will take all decisions with consensus," the PCB chief was quoted as saying in local daily 'Dawn'.

Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests and five one-dayers on their first full tour of India in six years.

Asked about reported reservations of PCB about playing in Ahmedabad, he said the venues and itinerary would be finalised with understanding.

"We have to look at logistics and distances between cities so that our team members can get maximum rest during series," he said.

Shaharyar said all issues would be sorted out during his proposed meeting with former BCCI chief Asian Cricket Council chief Jagmohan Dalmiya at the ACC meeting in Dubai on Jan 30.

The PCB chief reiterated Board's decision to continue with Inzamam-ul Haq as captain and former cricketer Wasim Bari as Chief Selector despite the poor showing of the team on the current tour of Australia till the West Indies tour which would follow the Indian tour.

"A decision has already been announced and the Board does not find it appropriate to clarify the issue again," he said.
