India Should Make First Move and Come Over to Pakistan: PCB Chief

Chairman of the Management Committee of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Najam Sethi has urged the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to cross the border to play Asia Cup matches in Pakistan as a first step towards normalisation.Organising the Asia Cup in a neutral site is permitted, according to Sethi, but players must travel to India for the World Cup.

“Our contention is that India should make the first move and come over to Pakistan to play the Asia Cup,” Najam Sethi said.

Sethi’s comments were made in answer to a query about Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s upcoming trip to India to attend the SCO meeting that will be held in Goa on May 4-5.

It should be mentioned that strained political ties between India and Pakistan have made matters more difficult, and cricket is now stuck in the geopolitical quagmire between the rivalling neighbours, who only face off in multi-team tournaments.
