No Indo-Pak bilateral series anymore?

New Delhi, Sept 14: Pakistan Cricket Board chairman has dashed off an ultimatum over Indo-Pak bilateral series, that Pakistan will visit India only if India participates in a league organised by PCB, even if at a neutral locale.

Ijaz Butt, PCB chairman, expressed his interest to see the renewal of cricketing ties between long-time political adversaries, however, he confirmed that it can only happen if all the conditions are met.

PCB has come up with neutral venues such as Malaysia, Sri Lanka or UAE to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for bilateral series next year. However, there is no response from Indian cricket board yet.

"If they play against us what is due according to the ICC Future Tour Programme, then we will  definitely come," DHNS reported Butt as saying.

Butt made this statement in the backdrop of next year's Pakistan's scheduled tour of India.

"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," Butt said.
