Butt to meet ICC officials at Lord’s


Pakistan’s cricket chief Ijaz Butt is expected to meet top International Cricket Council (ICC) and English board officials on the sidelines of the 2,000th Test that will feature England and India at Lord’s later this week. The details of a proposed visit of an ICC task team to Pakistan are expected to be hammered out in the meetings.
The PCB chairman is likely to meet ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat and Giles Clarke, the England and Wales Cricket Board ( ECB) boss, who heads ICC’s Pakistan Task Team (PTT) in London later this week, the reports said. “All three of them will be part of ICC’s celebrations being planned in connection with the 2,000th Test,” said a source. “Though nothing has been finalized yet, it is believed that Butt, Lorgat and Clarke will meet in London to discuss the details of a proposed PTT visit to Pakistan. There are strong chances that the trip will be finalized sometime this week.”
