This is what I think of the issue and reposting it from the FTP tour thread:
The candidate issue was an gentleman's agreement.
So Pakistan won't be doing a huge favour by accepting our guy.
As for tour is concerned, we should bargain a bit harder.
Fine with me if the boys go to Pakistan, given written assurance from the Pak Govt to provide Top VVIP security protocol.
In return, get another full home-away series from Pakistan outside the current FTP. That means 2 series, each of 3 tests, 5 ODIs and 2 T20.
We got a raw deal in the proposed FTP and its upto us to make sure we increase the number of games.
Then make Saber H Chowdhury the Cricket Supremo.
Him at the top of the helm, we can be rest assured of the diplomacy part of our cricket development.
