They cornered BCCI president Shashank Manohar and protested saying they will not allow any cricket ties with Pakistan. 

Khan and head of its executive committee Najam Sethi on Sunday left for India in a bid to convince the BCCI to confirm the bilateral series in December.

Khan and Sethi are expected to meet with the new BCCI President Shashank Manohar and Secretary Anurag Thakur along with other government officials in New Delhi.

"The trip is being made on the invitation of Shashank Manohar who took over as the new Indian cricket chief," a official in the PCB said.
