Pakistan and NZ Cricket still to confirm change of tour

7:30 am on 2 May 2009

Pakistan is still yet to accept New Zealand Cricket's offer of switching the Black Caps' scheduled tour there later this year to New Zealand.

Pakistan's playing Australia on neutral soil in Dubai because of security concerns in the wake of the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan sid, but the cost is forcing a re-think of holding future tours there.

The series was relocated after Australia refused to send its team to Pakistan in the wake of the attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore.

New Zealand Cricket CEO Justin Vaughan says they're still trying to work throught the financial ramifications.

New Zealand's last tour to Pakistan in 2002 was abandoned before the second Test after a suicide bomb attack outisde their hotel which killed 14 people.
