Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf declared a state of emergency on Saturday, but the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said there was no reason for cricket tours to be affected.

CA spokesman Peter Young said, “It was too early to determine if Australia’s tour should go ahead”.

“There will be an inspection tour closer to the date, but until then, we’ll just be keeping an eye on things,” Young added.

Australia is scheduled to play three Tests and five One-day Internationals (ODIs) in Pakistan in February and March.

The last time Australia were supposed to play Tests in Pakistan, the matches were moved to neutral venues in Sri Lanka and Sharjah because of safety concerns.

Pakistan is currently playing an ODI series in India while Australia is hosting Sri Lanka for a Test series. (ANI)
