    Decision on Indo-Pak ties likely in June - Ashraf

    The ICC's annual conference in Kuala Lumpur in June is where India and Pakistan could take significant steps towards the resumption of cricketing ties, with even the possibility of the announcement of a series, according to PCB chief Zaka Ashraf.

    Ashraf is in Delhi for a few days after attending the IPL final (to which he was invited by the BCCI) in Chennai, and he told ESPNcricinfo, "Probably the final decision will be [taken] in Kuala Lumpur, where the ICC board of directors meeting will be held. There MrSrinivasan and I will hold discussions, and maybe we will be able to formulate and announce something about the resumption of ties."

    He denied that the two parties had already discussed or suggested a tentative schedule for a bilateral series during a gap in England's winter tour of India, when the England team will return home for a Christmas break. "The BCCI haven't conveyed that to us. What we see on the calendar is that the English team will continue to play matches. But that is now up to the BCCI, the ball is in their court. They have to think which slab is available, where there is a vacuum during which both of us can play. What we can play, what format … they have to take steps and let us know."

    During his stay in Delhi on what was his first visit to India, Ashraf said he had met with the Pakistani high commissioner to India, Salman Bashir, and political leaders of several parties, ruling and opposition, whose names he did not wish to reveal.

    India and Pakistan have not played each other in a bilateral series since December 2007. It is India's turn to tour Pakistan, but the country has not hosted an international series between two Full Members at home following the Lahore terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team bus in March 2009. Bilateral ties between India and Pakistan have been frozen since the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks. Pakistan, however, travelled to India to play in the semi-final of the 2011 World Cup.

    How come we are only hearing statements from Pak and not from BCCI? Sounds suspicious. I think nothing has been decided and Ashraf probably thinks by pre-emptively going public with this, he can pressure BCCI into acceding.

    ^ You really think media can make the Ind v Pak series? I doubt it highly... and with Ashraf pressing with media, than with BCCI; it complicate matters than actually BCCI going with it.

    ^ Don't cross the line...

    Australia =

    They are worse than West Indies... As a matter of fact, they are worse than your rugby team, there I said it.

    Ponting = garbage player
    Clarke = gully player, got into cricket with his rich dad
    Watson = modeling got him into cricket... WHORE!
    Hussey = cheapest **** in the Australian side
    Siddle = bowls like Sreesanth, and moans like a pornstar... better to watch Katy Perry sing FFS. That too live.
    Johnson = can't even swing the ball. With that **** up action, he only know how to bowl like a 1 year old.
    Harris = fatty! Gonna die from a heart attack... get him some help FFS.
    Hilfenhouse = what a **** name... do I need to go on?

    Garbage team of the year...

    No room for PCB as BCCI aims to host all matches

    LAHORE: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is insisting on playing all the matches of the proposed Indo-Pak series on its own soil while the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is keen to host at least one T20 and a One-day International as negotiations between the two boards continue, well-informed sources told Dawn.

    According to the Future Tours Programme (FTP), it is India’s turn to tour Pakistan because their 2009 visit here could not materialise due to strained relations between the two nations following the Mumbai attacks in November 2008.

    As for the proposed Indo-Pak series, sources disclosed that the BCCI has already allotted the matches to its affiliated states and is not willing to allow PCB to host even a single match in Pakistan.

    In return, however, the BCCI is offering handsome financial packages one of which include that all the media right income will be awarded to the PCB which is desperately looking to improve its financial position.
