Cricket-Pakistan could switch home series to India - PCB

Pakistan may offer to switch their home series against India early next year to India if the Indian government does not clear the tour over security worries, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt said.

"Pakistan cricket has already suffered a lot because of teams refusing to play at our venues. We are counting on India to break the ice," Butt said on Monday.

"But if the Indians are not permitted by their government to tour Pakistan for any reason then we can look at the option of swapping the series with India."

Doubts have emerged over India's tour to play three tests, five one-dayers and a Twenty20 game beginning in January after the Indian government stopped a junior hockey team from touring Pakistan at the last moment earlier this month over security concerns.

Pakistan cricket has suffered heavily this year due to the refusal of teams and players to tour following a series of suicide bombings.

In August, the International Cricket Council (ICC) postponed the Champions Trophy after facing a possible boycott from five of the eight teams in the field.
