As part of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Championship, Pakistan and India are scheduled to play a series from July to November, to be hosted by India.

The Indian cricket board has sought permission from the government to host the series; however, the Indian government is yet to give an official statement.

According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) sources, Pakistan will not contact India for the series, since India is the designated host of the series.

No contact has been made from the India side over the series either, the sources added.

In the past, the Indian women’s cricket team refused to play a series with Pakistan, despite of Pakistan’s offer to play the series at a neutral venue.

Pakistan was then awarded points subsequently after India’s refusal to play the series.

An ICC spokesperson said the series between the two countries and it was the responsibility of the member countries to arrange the series.

If the issue of points table came to ICC, it will be resolved, added the spokesperson.
