Karachi, Sep.10 (ANI): Indo-Pak cricket ties seem to be heading on the right track, after the soured relationship between both countries following the 26/11 carnage saw both teams refusing to play home series against each other.
According to well placed PCB sources, the Pakistan Cricket Board received some ‘positive signals’ from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) regarding its proposal of hosting a short series with India on a neutral venue.
Sources said a top BCCI official called a senior PCB administrator to discuss the possibility of the ‘ice breaking’ series.
“A BCCI official made contact with the PCB and all I can tell you at this point in time is that there were positive signals from the other side of the border regarding the possibility of reviving Pakistan-India cricket matches,” The News quoted sources, as saying.
The PCB is hoping to host India in one or two One-day Internationals or Twenty20 matches in London, Dubai or Kuala Lumpur, whenever both the teams are free to play.
“If things fall in place, such games could be arranged on a very short notice and might even happen within the next few months,” sources added.
The newly appointed PCB Chief Operating Officer (COO), Wasim Bari has also said that hosting a full-fledged Test and one-day series against India on a neutral venue would be a top priority for him.
“It’s very important for our cricket to have regular matches against India,” Bari had said right after assuming charge. (ANI)
