BCCI writes letter to government for Pakistan series approval

NEW DELHI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has written a letter to the Indian government to ask for approval regarding the series against Pakistan in the UAE.


The Indian board is expected to receive a reply from the government in mid-November.

The wait is due to the elections which are being held in the province of Bihar which are scheduled on November 5.

In the recent setting, PCB chairman Shahryar Khan was invited by the BCCI president Shashank Manohar to visit India to discuss the series and resolve bilateral cricket issues.

After a violent protest by the Hindu right-wing party Shiv Sena, the talks were cancelled and a dejected Shahryar returned to Pakistan.

India maintained that the series was still not called off and they were ready to discuss it in a later meeting.

PCB, meanwhile, wrote a letter to BCCI to inquire about the date and venue of the rescheduled meetings.

The series which is scheduled to be played in December according to the MoU signed between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and BCCI and has already faced a lot of hurdles on its way towards materialisation.
