Let India play Pakistan first: Ejaz Butt
Zeenews Sports Bureau
London: Referring to Pakistan’s scheduled tour of India next year, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt made it clear that they will tour India only if they play in a series hosted by Pakistan.
“If they play against us what is due according to the ICC Future Tour Programme, then we will definitely come,” he said.
Butt wanted India to play Pakistan on any of the neutral venues suggested by the PCB. The PCB had suggested neutral venues, such as Malaysia, Sri Lanka or UAE to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a bilateral series next year but the Indian board is yet to respond.
“We have already conveyed them (BCCI) about venues like Malaysia, Sri Lanka or UAE. We have given them a number of options but they are yet to get back to us. Unless they play in a Pakistan-hosted series, we won’t play in India.”
