Cricket Australia (CA) has confirmed Australia's tour of Pakistan has been postponed due to security fears.

CEO James Sutherland announced the decision at a media conference in Melbourne this afternoon.

"For us the safety and security of our employees comes first and we've been left with no alternative but to arrive at this position," he said.

"We've left no stone unturned, we wanted to play this tour and really the only consideration that we could have was to ensure that safety and security was there and to tour, and unfortunately we weren't able to arrive at that level of comfort."

"Together with the PCB we've been able to come to a solution that works for everyone."

Sutherland said the decision to postpone was made with the hope of touring at another time.

You can't compromise when it come to player safety.
