MUMBAI - After the 26/11 terrors attacks in Mumbai, the BCCI on behest of the Indian government, snapped all its ties with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). The BCCI president, Shashank Manohar, had advocated that no bilateral series be played with Pakistan till 2012. But the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt's claims of including India-Pakistan matches in the revised Future Tour Programme (FTP) have raised hopes of a thaw in the relationship. However, Lalit Modi and Co are in no mood to reciprocate this gesture by Ijaz Butt. No Pakistani umpire has been included in the final list of the umpires who will officiate in the forthcoming Champions League, to be co-hosted by the BCCI, CA and CSA. According to sources close to the BCCI, Rudi Koertzen, Russell Tiffin, Daryl Harper, Brian Jerling, Kumar Dharmasena and Billy Doctrove are set to officiate in the CL matches. Interestingly, Aleem Dar and Asad Rauf, the two ICC Elite Panel Umpires from Pakistan have missed the bus this time. Aleem Dar, one of the better umpires in the Elite Panel, is tipped to dethrone Simon Taufel as the Best ICC Umpire of the year this year. In April 2004 he became the first Pakistani to be part of the ICC Elite Umpire Panel. Since then he has been regarded as one of the top umpires, being nominated for the ICC Umpire of the year Award in 2005 and 2006, although he was pipped to the post by Simon Taufel. Not only a good umpire on the field but a gentleman off it too, Dar has been paying Rs.5,000 every month to the family of the bus driver who lost his life in the 3/3 Lahore terror attacks and will continue to do till he is on the ICC panel..
