PCB chief hopes UAE series will end Pak home series "at off-shore venues" predicament

Islamabad, Sat, 28 Jan 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Jan 28 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf is hoping that the current Test series against England at Abu Dhabi would be their last home series "at an off-shore venue".


"This England series could be our last series to be held at an off-shore venue. We are keen to host international teams just like other member boards are doing," the Daily Times quoted Ashraf, as saying.


"We are already engaged with the Bangladesh board and I am sure their tour to Pakistan in April will break the ice. We are in contact with the Pakistan government as well and they have given their consent to us hosting Bangladesh to start with. They have given us their full support," he added.


However, a spokesman for the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) raised doubts over their expectations.


"The government has told us to form a security delegation to visit Pakistan but we have nothing in writing as yet from the government and it is yet to be decided when it is the best time for them to go to Pakistan," the spokesman said.


He made it clear that it was only after the security delegation's visit to Pakistan that the Bangladesh board would take a decision on touring Pakistan in April. (ANI)
