Bilateral cricket relations between Pakistan and India can resume in 2021, a media report has suggested. The two arch-rivals played the last bilateral series in 2012-2013.
But ever since due to the deteriorating political relations between India and Pakistan, the one-on-one series came to a complete halt. The only time these Asian giants have collided in the last few years was in ICC events and Asia Cup.
A report in Pakistan newspaper ‘Jang’ has said that India and Pakistan might soon get involved in the bilateral cricket series again with a possibility of the six-day window for a three-match T20I series later in the year.
A PCB official, according to the report, initially denied the speculations as he said that there are no talks between PCB and the BCCI, but hinted that there is a possibility about a series later in the year.
Meanwhile, PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani on Tuesday said that no one has contacted the board while denying that the Pakistan board is in talks with the Indian board.
PCB sources have said that if the series goes ahead then it will be the Indian team that will visit Pakistan as Pakistan had toured India the last time.
Notably, the ICC meeting is to be held soon where the Indian board has to inform the ICC about the progress made on visas and security arrangements for Pakistan players, journalists, and spectators in the upcoming T20 World Cup, scheduled to be held in India later this year.
