WELLINGTON: A decision on the venues for New Zealand's proposed tour of Pakistan later this year would be known within three weeks, New Zealand Cricket chief executive Justin Vaughan said on Saturday.
New Zealand had been scheduled to tour Pakistan in November and December but on Friday the International Cricket Council (ICC) effectively ruled the strife-torn country a no-go zone. The ICC board dumped Pakistan as a co-host of the 2011World Cup following an attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in March, which increased already heightened concerns about safety in the country.
