After the world cup BCCI and PCB trying to plan Pakistan vs India series but there are many issues and both the side not agreed with each other terms. Now there is news that BCCI offers PCB to play it’s home series in India next month.
The PCB chief Shaharyar Khan said that he had however informed Manohar that Pakistan would like to play the series in December in UAE as per the MoU signed with the BCCI.
“Why should we play our home series (Pakistan vs India Series) in India and not in UAE which is stated in the MOU and there is the matter of security for our team and plus the nearly $50 million that we expect to earn from hosting the series,” he said.
“I told Manohar how can we play in India when there is so much anti-Pakistan sentiments there by some of their groups. We have played our last two series in India and I think it is time we now got to host the series,” Shaharyar added.
The PCB chief, however, said he was not authorised to take a decision on Manohar’s offer and he would consult the board of governors when they meet on November 17.
“But more importantly I have to first also seek clearance from the Prime Minister for any decision we take. At the moment I have told the Indian cricket chief to send us a detailed proposal in writing,” he said.
There has been a perceptible change in the BCCI stand over the proposed Pakistan vs India series in the last few days with many of their top officials saying that it could not be entirely ruled out.
BCCI president Manohar, however, said that they have not even approached the government yet for clearance and any statement to this effect was not correct.
“It’s an incorrect statement. We have not yet approached the government. Yes, I have talked to him over phone and we may talk again in the next couple of days,” he said.
