'India had no role in shitfing ties'


ICC on Thursday dismissed Pakistan’s claims that India was behind the shifting of their 2011 World Cup matches and said the decision could have been avoided if the security apprehensions in the strife-torn country were responsibly addressed during the ICC Executive Board meeting.

“India had nothing to do with the decision. The decision was taken after consulting all the member nations. There are all together 16 member nation’s in ICC and India is just one of them,” ICC Chief Executive Officer Haroon Lorgat said.

“Had Pakistan done half as they are doing right now before the ICC meeting, the decision could have been avoided. We know many countries won’t tour Pakistan. Pakistan is now trying to defend their own position,” he said.
