Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt has said that even though he wants to see the cricketing ties between India and Pakistan getting resumed, he made it clear that Pakistan won t play in India unless India play in a Pakistan-hosted series.

The PCB has suggested neutral venues to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), such as Malaysia, Sri Lanka or UAE for a bilateral series next year.

Butt was quoted by DHNS, “If they play against us what is due according to the ICC Future Tour Programme, then we will definitely come,” he said referring to Pakistan s scheduled tour of India next year.

“We have already conveyed them (BCCI) about venues like Malaysia, Sri Lanka or UAE. We have given them a number of options but they are yet to get back to us. Unless they play in a Pakistan-hosted series, we won t play in India,” he added.
