India are scheduled to play three Tests, five one-dayers and a Twenty20 International during a six-week-long tour that is scheduled to begin from January 5 2009.It is an eagerly awaited series in Pakistan, who have not played a single Test in 2008, but now as the Indian city of Mumbai is rocked with militants attacks which have left more than hundred people died and hundreds of injured, there is no talk of India touring Pakistan.

That and the senior players in the Indian team have started to show their unwillingness to visit Pakistan. Dhoni, Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh — have all expressed their unwillingness to go to Pakistan.

The PCB is currently making efforts to save the series and its chief Ijaz Butt is planning to visit India early next month to convince India that their cricketers will be safe in Pakistan. In the wake of recent attacks, even there are not slim chances of holding of series in Pakistan and even the prospects of the series are in jeopardy.

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi is in Delhi with the message that Pakistan wants more cricketing and diplomatic ties with India. But he is not getting anywhere.
