"I realise that the Indians have taken too much time over deciding on the bilateral series with Pakistan, but even if it does not happen now it will happen soon," Akram said at a function in Karachi.

"But yes I think the Indian board should also give a clear answer whether they want to play or not and put the issue aside," the Sultan of Swing added.

Akram however said the PCB should not even think about boycotting the World T20 for any reason. "The World T20 is an ICC event and we should participate in it at all costs. If we don't it will harm us in the long run," Akram said.
