Karachi: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed its support to Pakistan for hosting the Champions Trophy.

BCCI secretary, Niranjan Shah has said the successful organisation of the Asia Cup has shown the world that the game is on in Pakistan.

The Australian media had claimed that the BCCI was keen on postponing the Champion Trophy rather than relocating it, if security concerns arise. However, Shah dismissed the reports.

''As always, BCCI is with PCB. We have never asked or thought of postponing ICC Champions Trophy. No question was raised about the tournament during the ICC meetings in Dubai and everybody agreed that it will be held in Pakistan. I think the tournament will go without any doubt,'' Shah said.

Shah also said, ''We have never raised questions regarding security in Pakistan for the Champions Trophy.''
