No neutral umpires

The PCB, this story says, will not be asking for neutral umpires for the ODI series that follows the Tests. What is of particular interest is the reason why:
"Apparently, the Indians didn't take it seriously because they never bothered to get back to us on this issue at all. Feeling they were not interested we also dropped the idea because you can't have neutral umpires in ODIs without the consent of the touring team," he was quoted as saying in 'The News' today.

Amazing, the number of times 'the Indian board did not get back to us' keeps popping up in stories; makes you wonder just what the board, with all its committees and administrative infrastructure, does do.
