Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials will meet their Indian counterparts in September during the ICC Chief Executives meeting to discuss the possibility of a bilateral series to compensate for a tour cancelled by India in 2009.

PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad said while Pakistan had to tour India next year and had no issues doing that but India must look at playing a compensatory series.

“Next month we will be in London for the ICC awards and chief executives meeting and hopefully we will take up these issues with the Indian board officials,” he said.

“Yes, we are due to tour India early next year as part of the Future Tours Program but before that we feel the Indian board should compensate us with a series for that cancelled tour that cost us millions of dollars in estimated revenues,” Ahmad said.

“If we can't play in Pakistan then playing the series at neutral venues is also an option available to us but we want the Indian board to revive bilateral ties by compensating us for that cancelled tour," he added.

India was due to play three Tests, five one-dayers and a Twenty20 match on the tour of early 2009 but it got cancelled after the Mumbai attacks.
