We're unaware of Indo-Pak match: Dalmiya

Kolkata:

Cricket Board president Jagmohan Dalmiya today ruled out any plan to meet any official of the Abu Dhabi Cricket Control Board on the proposed exhibition India-Pakistan match in the desert city and maintained that BCCI was still "completely in the dark" about the tie. Asked about reports that a top official of the ADCCB has arrived in India to meet BCCI officials, Dalmiya said "I don't know who is coming to or going out of India." "But I can categorically state that I don't have appointment with anybody. Nor does any other board official," he said today. Dalmiya also rubbished claims that he had spoken to ADCCB chief B R Shetty over the matter. "As far as the BCCI is concerned, no permission has been given for such a match. In fact, we are completely in the dark about it," he said. "None of the present Indian players will participate in the so-called match." The ADCCB had said on Sunday that an Indian and Pakistani eleven would clash on May 14 in the US$ 100,000 Sheikh Zayed Cricket Cup and claimed that both the Indian and Pakistan Cricket Boards had given their consent. However, both Dalmiya and BCCI secretary S K Nair yesterday described the claim as "baseless" and said the Board was not aware of the match. (PTI)
