The tours that you are talking about were already scheduled tour (Asia Cup) so its not like BCCI went out of their way just to help PCB, other members of Asian bloc did pay the visit as well not just BCCI . Everybody and their daddy knows that BCCI was all doing this for their own self interest as they did not want to loose a valuable vote in ICC as well have PCB support regarding banning of ICL players.
