LAHORE - Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt will leave for India on October 28 to hold talks with his Indian counterparts for a bilateral series on a neutral venue and discuss the Chinas desire to hold the next Asia Cup. In a media interaction here, the PCB chairman said that he will also hold talks with the Indian government officials and the Pakistan high commission in New Delhi. I dont want to go into the details of this visit and I will give details when I return home, Butt said. Butt said the visit was an attempt by Pakistan to convince the Indian board and International Cricket Council to arrange a bilateral one-day series at a neutral venue next year. He is also expected to discuss with the Indian Cricket Board officials the Future Tours Programme and Pakistani players participation in the Indian Premier League. It is no secret that the PCB is keen to play a short bilateral series with India even at a neutral venue and has also sought the cooperation of the ICC in this regard, a board official said. Pakistani players are keen to take part in the lucrative IPL next year after having missed out on the opportunity this year. The Indian board will have to seek clearance from its government to play Pakistan in a bilateral series at a neutral venue or allow Pakistani players to take part in the IPL, he added. Butt also confirmed that China had offered to host the next Asia Cup and for this purpose was preparing an international standard ground. Malaysia was initially picked as the venue for the next Asia Cup at the last Asian Cricket Council meeting. He said Butt could also utilise his visit to hold talks with the Indian officials about the possibility of having the tournament in China. He said that the members of the team management would be announced in a day or two as he could not do this due to his engagements. Replying to a question, Ijaz Butt said that nobody including the captain expressed any reservation on the management.
