Both boards get green signal
The respective governments of both Pakistan and India have finally agreed to a short bilateral series between the arch rivals. The news came as a breath of fresh air for fans from both sides of the border as the Indo-Pak clash attracts a lot of attention.
India media (ANI News) has reportedly quoted Rajiv Shukla as saying
“India-Pakistan series will happen tentatively from December 15 in Sri Lanka which will mark the resumption of cricketing ties between the two sides,”
The short series will begin on the 15th of December and will include three ODIs and two T20 internationals and so it will be similar to the one held in 2012 at the grounds of India. The Sri Lankan board had already welcomed the series between the two sides and they would be happy to host it.
The PCB had also cleared through a press release issued yesterday that the BCCI had not asked for any share in revenue for the series so all such rumors regarding the revenue issues are not true.
Earlier today Pakistan government had given permission to the Pakistan cricket Board to go ahead with the series. However it should be noted here that the official confirmation regarding the series is yet to come.
