Pakistan insists Zimbabwe cricket tour still on

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Shaharyar Khan speaks during a press conference in Lahore, on May 14, 2015Pakistan’s cricket chief said Friday Zimbabwe would be touring as scheduled after a major militant attack put the visit — the first by a Test playing nation in six years — in doubt. Zimbabwe Cricket Thursday released a statement saying the tour would not go ahead due to the “security risk” in the wake of an attack on minority Shiites in Karachi on Wednesday that left 45 dead. Speaking to reporters Friday, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan said his counterpart had now confirmed the tour. Zimbabwe are set to become the first Test team to tour Pakistan since militants attacked the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009, killing eight and injuring nine including six visiting cricketers.
