India vs. Pakistan Test series in neutral venues?

This is fantastic (as in unbelievable, ridiculous and plain funny), the PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt claims that "International Cricket Council has guaranteed that India and Pakistan would play a bilateral series after every two years even if were to be held at neutral venues".

 

There is no way ICC can guarantee anything as it is the Indian Government that has clamped on sporting relations with Pakistan. One is sure the BCCI themselves are surprised by this announcement.

 

Unsurprisingly, the announcement (PTI Karachi) emanates out of Pakistan.

 

Coming as it does at the heels of yesterday's announcement of Pakistan bidding for the Twenty20 World Cup 2014; it appears all these announcements are made to impress his political boss in Pakistan.
