LAHORE The Pakistan Cricket Board is looking for a short series against India at a neutral venue, most probably in England, before a complete series being planned for next year. The cricket boards of the two countries are looking for an opening in their busy schedules to plan a short series ahead of a full bilateral series which is likely next year provided the governmnents in Islamabad and New Delhi allow it to happen. However, the way the intelligence agencies across the border are being linked to terror attacks in Pakistan, it is believed there is little possibility that the government in Delhi would allow its cricket board to go ahead with the series. While the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt went to India, as reports suggested, after green signal from the govt., with an olive branch and met the Indian govt. and board officials. The PCB chief in his meetings with the Indian board asked them to try to find space in their teams busy schedule to play a couple of matches at a neutral venue before taking up a complete series next year. Butt was told by former Indian board President Sharad Pawar that the series were possible only in case the relations between the two countries improved. The PCB chairman briefed the governing board members of the latest developments after his visit to India and also informed them of the possibility of Pakistan playing a number of World Cup 2011 matches in India to end the thaw in relations and move forward. The chairman also apprised the members that an increase in the boards income is only possible if it plays bilateral series against India which would bring television rights and sponsorships. The PCB has already sold the television rights to TenSports for $140.5m but the money will only come if the series is played.
