Lahore, Jul (UNI) The Four-nation Twenty20 tournament involving Pakistan, Bangladesh, West Indies and Canada, to be held at Toronto, Canada from August 14-17, has been called off.

''The biggest problem is the ground, Toronto does not have a proper stadium... it's a flat ground and we had to erect a lot of facilities there. So when West Indies inspected the ground they were not satisfied,'' chief organiser Hasan Jalil said.

''They had set some conditions... because of these conditions it is a very risky affair now as just two weeks are left and there is no MOU signed with West Indies so we are in a limbo right now,'' he added.

However, Jalil also claimed that the tournament may be held after the Champions Trophy this September.

''Overall the boards have been supporting us. We signed MOU's with PCB, Canada cricket board, Bangladesh cricket board.... so hopefully if there is a change we will re-schedule most likely after the Champions Trophy,'' he said.

Jalil also informed that the organisers are trying hard to rope in Sri Lanka as the fourth team.
