Event Notes: AIFF Denies Zambia Permission To Tour Goa
The All India Football Federation "has refused permission to the Zambia national team" to train in the state of Goa, "prompting the African Cup of Nations champions to look elsewhere" (TNN, 11/16). ... Int'l Cricket Council President Alan Isaac said that "Bangladesh's proposed tour of Pakistan next month was a matter between the two nations, and the governing body's role was limited to deploying match officials for the series." Isaac said, "The process is clear. First Bangladesh and Pakistan have to confirm the tour is taking place, then they have to supply a security plan and only at that stage do ICC make an assessment with regard to the match officials" (PTI, 11/17).
