Asked what message the Foreign Secretary would give over to cricket chiefs during his meeting with them today, the PMOS said that the cricket chiefs were well aware of the Government’s view on touring Zimbabwe because we had been talking to them continuously throughout this whole issue and updating them on the situation there. The question as to whether they should tour or not was a matter for them. Governments were unable to instruct cricketers, or any other individuals, as to whether to travel to certain countries or not.
