The Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) Management Committee, Najam Sethi stated that the board would follow the government's advice on touring India for next year's ICC T20 World Cup, media reports said.

Sethi said that Pakistan and India cricket issues are beyond the cricket board's control and the government always decides them, according to reports in Geo News.

"We will obey whatever the government would suggest to us and we will seek the government's advice when the time arrives, similar to the last time I was the chairman," said Sethi.

"As far as the Asia Cup is concerned, I will go to ACC (Asian Cricket Council) and see what the situation is; we'll take a decision which is in the better interest of the game;

"We have to see what other board's position is, we have to play cricket with everyone, we will not take any step which can cause any isolation," Sethi said.


Always Respected Ramiz Raja: Najam Sethi

Replying to a question, Sethi said there would be no gag on former PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja's commentary assignments.

"I've always respected him, I understand his position, but we will always welcome if he wants to do commentary assignments in the future," the Chairman stated.

Sethi also confirmed that the PCB had approached Mickey Arthur for a coaching assignment, but nothing has been finalised as of yet.


He said they would decide on the coach in 8 to 10 days.

"We have contacted Mickey Arthur, and he is currently busy with Derbyshire. We have sought his consultation on whether he is available or not and if he has some names to suggest to us," Sethi said.
