CHENNAI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf in an interview to ‘Times of India’ said that Pakistan was willing to play India anywhere including on their home turf.
According to the Indian paper, Ashraf who was in Chennai to attend the IPL final is expected to meet BCCI officials in an effort to renew cricketing ties between the two countries.
Relations took a turn towards the positive when the BCCI allowed the Sialkot Stallions to take part in the Champions League to be held in India in October. When asked about Pakistani players being selected in the IPL, Ashraf replied that would be discussed with the BCCI and there would be some serious breaking news soon.
Ashraf added that he had a zero tolerance policy for corruption in cricket and Pakistan was trying to move ahead from the spot-fixing saga. The PCB chairman when commenting on Mohammed Amir said the young cricketer was trapped and the cricket board wanted him to come back.
