Pakistan cricketers advise PCB not to expect bilateral series against India
Mar 31 2017
Talking to the media here, Khan said India failed to abide by the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) due to which they had to bear a loss of million dollars. He was responding to reports that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has written to the Home Ministry seeking permission to play Pakistan in Dubai.
Because of the poor security situation in Pakistan, any bilateral series that the PCB hosts is organised in Dubai.
Notably, India resume their worldwide assignments following the 10th edition of Indian Premier League, starting 5 April, against Pakistan in the opening match of ICC Champions Trophy on 4 June in Edgbaston.
Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq and senior player Shahid Afridi on Thursday contradicted limited-overs skipper Sarfaraz Ahmad's claims that the Indian team was scared of playing against Pakistan and that was why the Indo-Pak bilateral series was not happening. There was talk of India and Pakistan playing a bilateral series previous year, but it never took place.
Meanwhile, the PCB chairman also announced that the PCB would file a compensation case against the BCCI before the ICC Disputes Resolution Committee for India's refusal to play Pakistan in bilateral series. Our PSL champions should play champions from other leagues like IPL and I am sure they will offer a good challenge to those teams.
A second innings slump then helped India to a eight-wicket win for a 2-1 series triumph on Tuesday but Australia's efforts earned them widespread praise.
The bilateral series is expected to be held in September-November 2017.
A source was quoted saying, "Permission has been sought from Home Ministry, we don't know what is the government stand. Unless the government gives its nod, the BCCI can not do anything", a report in The Indian Express quoted a source as saying. Last time, tension between the two countries was at its peak.
