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 Saturday after a week-long visit to India to inspect the match venues and other arrangements, including security for the Pakistan team.
 
The delegation has expressed its satisfaction over the security and other arrangements being made for the tour.
 
“The delegation has given us a report and they are satisfied that our team will be well looked after in every aspect so the tour is on,” Ashraf said.
 
Nadeem Sarwar, the media manager of the board, who went with the delegation to India, said that they had done a comprehensive inspection of arrangements at every venue.
 
“We are sure there will be foolproof security for our players as all the match venues have the ability to do this.
 
The visa policy has also been made clear now so everything is on track,” Sarwar said.
 
He also said that the Indians were also making top arrangements for the series, which is a highly anticipated one in India as well.
