Karachi:

Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt returned home a happy man from Dhaka after holding meetings with the ICC officials, Sharad Pawar and Haroon Lorgat.

Butt was in Dhaka for the 2011 World Cup logo unveiling ceremony and held meetings with the two key ICC officials on the sidelines before returning to Karachi.

Pawar who is also an influential figure in Indian cricket will take over as ICC President before the World Cup from David Morgan.

"I had two very good and constructive meetings with Pawar and Lorgat which will bring good news for Pakistan cricket in the near future," Butt said and added that Pawar as always remained supportive of Pakistan cricket.

He said that the meetings had focused on Pakistan's push for India restoring bilateral cricket ties with it this year and on Pakistan's international calendar that was affected by the security situation in the country.

"I also spoke about the 2011 World Cup and Pakistan's role and share from the tournament," he said.

Butt is facing growing calls for his ouster at home with the Chairman of the National Assembly standing committee on sports, Jamshed Dasti having sent a letter to the chief patron of the board, President Asif Zardari demanding the removal of Butt.
