No Indo-Pak Test series before 2013

Lahore, Jan 23: PCB has ruled out any possibilities of a bilateral Test series with India until 2013 due to ICC's Future Tour Program (FTP).

Subhan Ahmad, Chief Operating Officer, said it occured with the new ICC Future Tour Program (FTP) to be enforced this year, the scheduled Pakistan team's tour to India in March-April in the old FTP is now being shelved.

"It appears as if both boards now have to make a fresh start in the new FTP with India scheduled to tour Pakistan in 2013," he said.

Due to the Mumbai terror attacks, India did not tour Pakistan in 2009, while Pakistan's tour of India in March-April this year under old FTP is cancelled to due to various reasons.

Ahmad admitted that it is a case of even-steven between the two boards.

"We were demanding compensation for the cancelled tour of 2009 but now with India not hosting us this year, the situation has evened out between the two boards as both have suffered losses by not hosting these series in the old FTP," Ahmad explained.

"This basically means that we make a fresh start as far as bilateral relations are concerned between the two boards from 2013 when India is due to tour Pakistan under the new FTP," he added.
