Australia still unconvinced about Champions Trophy security

7:23 am on 25 July 2008

Australia's involvement in September's Champions Trophy one day cricket tournament remains in doubt despite the ICC's confirmation that Pakistan will host the event, due to start on September the 11th.

Players from Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa had all voiced concerns about playing the eight-team tournament in the strife-torn country.

The ICC has decided to send a special task force to Pakistan to review and report on security by August the 10th, with Cricket Australia likely to reserve their decision about participation in the tournament until then.
