''Basically the purpose of Ijaz Butt going to India is to hold one to one dialogue with the president of BCCI, which is very important for us. The ICL is not part of the discussions,'' a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said.

With the reports strife that India could possibly withdraw it tour of Pakistan early next year, the PCB had sent a request to their Indian counterparts to arrange a meeting between Butt and the BCCI president on December 3 to discuss the forthcoming tour.
