LAHORE Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt left for India on Wednesday to convince the Indian cricket board and the government officials to revive the cricket ties between the two countries. The Mumbai terror attack brought the two countries on verge of war and since then all sporting ties were cut off. However, the International Cricket Council has promised to play its role to bring the two cricketing nations on a cricket field most possibly at a neutral venue. The Indian team refused to take the scheduled tour against Pakistan early this year. The ICC had to re-draft the Future Tour Programme (FTP) after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) complained of being marginalised in the post-2012 schedule, having no series with India. The FTP, introduced in 2006, aims to provide a structured schedule of cricket for the 10 member countries. PCB chairman Butt refused to disclose the agenda of his tour. I am going to India, but at this point of time I am not going to make any comment and once things mature, only then will I be able to speak, said Butt. The PCB has suggested England as the possible venue for the series against India but recently India refused to play in a third country. However, the new FTP had Tests, one-dayers and Twenty20 matches with India. Not only Pakistan and India, but the ICC is also making efforts to revive bilateral ties between the two countries as it is imperative that we play against each other in the FTP and we will discuss the option of neutral venues, Butt said. I will give details of the tour on my return and right now I cannot say anything. Lets hope for the better, he said. However, critics believe the even though the cricket boards of the two countries agree to play, the series would only be possible after Islamabad and New Delhi give green signal. PCB chief operating officer Wasim Bari also reportedly hinted that India was now willing to talk on playing Pakistan at neutral venues. The international teams are reluctant to play in Pakistan following a wave of terror attacks including the one on the Sri Lanka team On March 3. That past incidents forced the PCB to move their home Test series to New Zealand late in November and will play two Tests against Australia in England next year. Inzi to PCB: Take fresh approach to avoid controversies Former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has asked the PCB to formulate a clear code of conduct to keep Pakistan cricket clear of controversies. Inzamam said there should be a proper procedure to deal with the controversies. He was commenting on reports of friction between the captain and some of the players. There should be a policy that discourages people from taking emotional decisions or from unnecessary controversies being created. There should be a policy on how the board deals with the captain, players and management after every series, Inzamam said. Inzamam, who played 120 Tests and 388 One-Day Internationals before retiring from the game in 2007, said the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had taken the correct decision by not accepting Younus Khans resignation as captain. The PCB took a wise decision by not accepting his (resignation) but I think in future Younus must also realise that he shouldnt be taking such emotional decisions as it hurts the image of Pakistan cricket, he was quoted as saying. Inzamam, the most capped player, said he is totally in favour of having a strong captain with authority but that depends upon how the captain uses his powers. Personally I feel that no captain can get positive results without having good communication with his players and team management. Inzamam said the Pakistan team has the capability of beating New Zealand in all forms of the game in the coming series but the tour to Australia would be a litmus test for everyone. He also hailed the decision to recall specialist openers, Salman Butt and Imran Farhat back into the team for the coming series against New Zealand. Salman has always been a good opener while Imran is making a comeback from the Indian Cricket League and is doing well at the domestic level. I have always believed you must have specialist openers in any form of the game, he said. The former captain also showed his displeasure over the selectors decision to drop Misbah-ul-Haq for the New Zealand series, pointing out that he was an experienced and mature player who would be missed in the trying conditions of New Zealand. I would have played him because he has been playing consistently for the last two years and this was the time to make full use of his experience, he said.
