Indo-Pak series saga draws to a close
The future of the series between Pakistan and India is hanging by the thread but is seems that its occurrence is now highly unlikely.
PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan has stated that he has not yet received any response from the BCCI regarding the approval of series. He said that time is running out and the organization of the series is now very difficult because in a short span of time assembling everything is going to be a hard task. He reiterated that the PCB is ready to play with India but it’s the people from across the border that are prolonging this issue and not proving them with something conclusive.
Khan also said that he is going to wait till Saturday for India’s response and he expects the BCCI to respect the MoU signed between the two boards.
Earlier Pakistan’s foreign minister Sartaj Aziz said, while addressing the Parliament, that his Indian counterpart Sushma Sawraj was aware of this matter regarding the series but she said that the cold relations between the two nations and other political issues have made this series a difficult proposition.
Judging by the words and body language of both Shaharyar Khan and Sartaj Aziz the chances of the series are now almost zero percent.
