Butt meets ICC chief

PCB chairman Ijaz Butt met ICC President Sharad Pawar seeking his support for the revival of the Pakistan and India series as soon as possible, it was learnt Thursday. On his return from India, Butt confirmed that during his visit to India he also met Pawar and has asked him to play his role as the ICC chief and former BCCI president in the revival of the bilateral series.
“Yes I met with Pawar as he is the ICC president and discussed Pakistan and India bilateral ties with him,” Butt said. “I told him that in his capacity as ICC chief and a prominent figure in India he can assist a lot in the revival of Pakistan and India cricket matches,” Butt said.
Pakistan has been pushing the ICC to assist in convincing the Indian board to revive bilateral ties, which have remained suspended since late 2007.Pakistan toured India in late 2007 and India were scheduled to pay a return visit for a full series to Pakistan in early 2009, but they cancelled the visit after the Mumbai terror attacks in November, 2008. Since then both nations have met in multi ICC events but not in
bilateral series.
