Indo-Pak Series to be Made Soon: BCCI


Mumbai: The cricket fans will have to wait a few more days to watch the iconic bilateral series between arch-rivals India and Pakistan would go ahead next month.

“Wait for a couple of more days,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said to a reporter’s query on the issue after fresh talks have taken place between the heads of the two countries’ cricket boards.

BCCI has invited Pakistan to play the series in India, its counterpart PCB has declined the offer and has said the series will have to take place in UAE where all its home international games are being held over the last few years.

“For any international event organised by ICC or ACC, it’s up to them to decide which is going to be the venue. For a bilateral series it’s upto the two nations to decide where they are comfortable,” he said.

“They (Ajay Shirke and G Gangaraju) met on Thursday (with Sanjay Patel and Anirudh Chaudhry) and sought certain details. They (Patel and Chaudhry) sought some time to reply with details. It’s (probe) going to take some time (to be completed),” said Thakur.
