Karachi: Dec 9, 2012

The PCB has said that the incident involving the captain of the national blind team in India will neither affect relations between the two cricket boards nor the forthcoming One-day series in India.

PCB chairman, Zaka Ashraf dismissed speculations about some conspiracy behind the incident where the blind cricket team captain, Zeeshan Ashraf drank detergent water thinking it to be mineral water.

“It was a mistake that led to the unfortunate incident and no acid was given to Zeeshan, that is incorrect. A waiter accidentally left a bottle of detergent on the breakfast table,” he said.

“If one person has made a mistake it should and will not affect cricket relations between the two countries and our tour to India is on schedule,” Ashraf insisted.

Pakistan’s national team is due to tour India from December 22 to play two T20 matches and three One-day Internationals, and it will be the first bilateral series between the two nations since 2007.

A high-level security delegation of the board also returned home yesterday after a week-long visit to India to inspect the match venues and other arrangements, including security for the Pakistan team.
