Karachi:Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan today met Foreign Ministry officials in Islamabad in a bid to resolve the tangle over Ahmedabad which is proposed to host one of the three Tests between the arch-rivals next month.

Pakistan cricket officials refused to reveal the details of Shaharyar's meeting but categorically stated that the PCB Chairman had not called on Foreign Minister Khursheed Ahmed Kasuri.

"Shaharyar visited Foreign Ministry to seek their advice on the venues for the forthcoming tour of India. Shaharyar also proposed that if they (Foreign Ministry) permit, he would handle the issue of finalisation of venues," officials told PTI.

The PCB chief's visit to Islamabad comes a couple of days after Indian Cricket Board Vice-President Rajiv Shukla called on Shaharyar at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Prior to his meeting with Shaharyar, Shukla had called on Pakistan's National Security Advisor Tariq Aziz who is a close aide of President General Pervez Musharraf.
