Not keen to play in Dharamsala, happy to consider alternate venue: PCB chief Shaharyar Khan

New Delhi: The India-Pakistan match in Dharamsala has been under a cloud after Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh said he opposed the BCCI's decision to stage it in his state.

While BCCI has assured the Pakistan Cricket Board of complete security to their player, but several groups have threatened to disrupt this encounter.

A two-member delegation from Pakistan arrived in India on Monday to check the security arrangements. PCB is expected to take a call based on the report submitted by the delegation.

Speaking to CNN-IBN, PCB chief Shaharyar Khan said that he was not keen on his team playing in Dharamsala and that he would be happy to consider an alternate venue should BCCI suggest one.

He said they were open at any venue across the country like Mohali, Kolkata and Chennai.

Khan said that the statements from the Congress party and its CM did not inspire confidence in visitors' team.

"The CM of Himachal Pradesh has said that he won’t provide us with security, what greater threat can you think of? Our team is there to review the security," he stated.

With regards to Imran Khan's comments, Khan said that the former Pakistan captain was unaware of all the facts in this matter.
