India could play cricket matches against Pakistan later this year in Dubai as the BCCI has written to Home Ministry, seeking to complete their obligations under the Future Tours & Programme (FTP) agreement which was inked in 2014.
Earlier, when it was headed by Shashank Manohar, the BCCI wanted to host Pakistan for a short series in 2016 but did not get government clearance owing to tension between the two countries and the subsequent terror attacks on Indian soil.
As per reports in Indian Express BCCI has now approached the Home Ministry, seeking government permission. And this time, the Indian team is willing to play a series in Dubai which is the home venue of the Pakistan team.
The Indian board is looking at a September or November window to play Pakistan. The BCCI had reserved September for the Champions League T20 but the tournament has been discontinued.
It is learnt that the BCCI wants a short series in November in Dubai before the Indian tour of South Africa.
