Pakistan are willing to tour India next year to break an impasse over the restoration of bilateral cricket ties between the countries.

"It is absolutely necessary for Pakistan and India to play bilateral matches and for this purpose if required we are even willing to send our team to India next year," Zaka Ashraf, the new chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), said.

Before leaving for Dubai for a meeting with International Cricket Council (ICC) officials, Ashraf said he had written to the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
