Bringing hope for the die hard cricket fans of both the nations, Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman, Ijaz Butt said that in very near future we can expect a full cricket series between India and Pakistan.
Butt, who entered India via Attrai Border to watch the semi final match along with his family, Butt said, "I have come here all the way to cheer my team and hope they do well. The morale of the team is very good and I hope that they do well in the semifinal as well."
On a question, the PCB chairman said, "This world cup means a lot to the Pakistan cricket. A victory here will really pick up things back home and it can be a big plus for Pakistan cricket."
Not complaining about lesser number of visas and tickets to Pakistani fans, the PCB chairman said, "No I think the BCCI has given us all the help and there are no complaints. They did whatever could be done about tickets."
Although many people back home want to come but that is not possible, he added.
On cricket relations between both India and Pakistan, the PCB chairman said, "The cricketing relations between both countries have always been good and their has never been an issue. I hope this year only we may have a full Indo-Pak series including Test match and one day internationals."
Butt, who avoided political queries, however said that the recent comment by a pak minister on match fixing is not going to effect the performance of the team." The Pakistani team is in great form and they have distractions and will be under no pressure, he added.
