Playing Pakistan in Dubai not ideal - Andrew Strauss

England captain Andrew Strauss says that playing their forthcoming Test series against Pakistan at a neutral venue in Dubai is "slightly strange" and "not ideal".

Touring sides are still banned from playing in Pakistan after the Sri Lankan team were attacked in Lahore in 2009.

Strauss also voices wider concerns about the status of the Test game, saying the International Cricket Council "need to work hard to make sure it's well-supported" across the world.
