No compromise on venue rotation during Pakistan series


The Indian board will arrange special flights to transport the players if the schedule is tight during Pakistan’s tour later this year, but has maintained that the venues of the matches would be decided by its own rotation system.

“We have played in small centres in Pakistan without hesitation. If necessary we will arrange for special flights but we will go by our rotation system in deciding the venues for the matches,” Niranjan Shah, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary, said.

Shah was reacting to reports that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was expecting its team to play a majority of its matches at big venues.

The tour is scheduled to begin in early November and sources said the PCB had already requested the BCCI not to schedule matches at venues that require a lot of travelling as was the case during the 2005 tour.

Pakistan players and officials had complained of fatigue due to extensive travelling on their last tour which the Indian Board defended as a necessary because it had to rotate international matches among its affiliated units.
