India has agreed to play against Pakistan in a bilateral series in a revised draft of the Future Tours Program that would be discussed at ICC's chief executive committee meeting in Johannesburg on October 1.

Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ejaz Butt told a press conference on Saturday that Pakistan had initially registered an official protest at the earlier draft of the new proposed FTP from 2012 onwards as it didn't feature any matches against India.

"India had not scheduled any bilateral series with us in the proposed FTP so we didn't accept it," Butt said.

But he said in the new revised FTP draft sent by India and South Africa to the ICC a copy of which was sent to Pakistan, there were matches between the arch-rivals.

"India has scheduled bilateral series against us in the new FTP including Tests, one-day internationals and Twenty20 matches which is good news for us," Butt said.

India has suspended all bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan since the Mumbai terror attacks last November and also called off a scheduled FTP Test tour to Pakistan early this year.
