The newly elected Pakistan Cricket Board [PCB] chairman Najam Sethi yesterday said he was optimistic about the resumption of bilateral cricketing ties with India once the relations between the two countries improve.

"I have not closed any doors with India. The way I see, as soon as relations improve between Pakistan and India the BCCI should get permission from its government to play a bilateral series against us," Sethi, who was yesterday officially elected as the chairman of the PCB, said. However, Sethi made it clear that the PCB would be pursuing its compensation claim against the BCCI before the ICC disputes resolution committee.
