Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt on Friday refused to react to Indian Sports Minister MS Gill's suggestion that the Indian team's tour of Pakistan should not go ahead in the wake of the terror attacks in Mumbai.

"I am here for a different meeting. I am not prepared to comment on government of India's decision," Butt, who is here to attend an Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting, said. Gill had said it was not the right time to play cricket with Pakistan when "people from their soil were indulging in mass murder in India".

"Is it possible for one team to arrive in Mumbai and indulge in mass murder, and have another team go and play cricket in the winter afternoon sun at Lahore, immediately after," he said.

Meanwhile, the ACC finance committee met on Friday but the deliberations of the meeting were not revealed to the media.
