Pakistan’s government has paved the way for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) permission to play a series against India in Sri Lanka.
Unconfirmed reports from India suggest that the Indian government has done likewise for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). If so, in effect, that means that a much-anticipated but shortened bilateral series between the two countries may finally go ahead in December.
“The Prime Minister [Nawaz Sharif] has given permission for Pakistan to play cricket matches with India in Sri Lanka,” the PM’s spokesman and the federal information minister Pervez Rashid told The National.
Officials from the PCB say they have not yet received official communication from the government. One official said that Shaharyar Khan, the PCB chairman, had “apprised” the prime minister — who is also the patron of the cricket board — of the meeting he had with his Indian counterpart Shashank Manohar.
News are coming too, that series will take place in mid of December 2015 with Only T20 Internationals & One Day Internationals. There is no interest in adding Test series to this series by both Boards.
