INDO-PAK BILATERAL SERIES
From Our Sports Correspondent
LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Executive Committee Chairman Najam Sethi yesterday said that ‘India’s father’ will also hold dialogues with Pakistan regarding the bilateral series. Najam Sethi expressed his views while talking to media persons at Lahore airport on returning back from Dubai, and said the impression that negotiations with India failed in Dubai is wrong. If the matter is not solved, we shall move to International Cricket Council, he remarked. Sethi said this is a complete process of four phases, the first step of conducting dialogues with Board of Control for Cricket in India has completed, and next three steps are yet to come. On the other hand, India’s sports minister Vijay Goel bashed BCCI for holding the meeting with PCB, and said the governing body should first talk to the government before giving any proposal to Pakistan. The minister once again rejected any possibility of playing series with Pakistan. Let it be known that BCCI had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with PCB to play six bilateral series with Pakistan to get Pakistan’s support for Big Three system, but later refused to play.
