Shahryar hopeful about India-Pak series post ICC meeting

Karachi, Oct.15 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan has expressed hope that the tumultuous cricketing relations between Pakistan and India will be resolved soon following a meeting with new BCCI president Shashank Manohar.

According to the Express Tribune, Shahryar said that his Indian counterpart assured him that cricketing relations between the two nations should improve, and added that India was ready to solve all issues concerning both cricket boards.

Shahryar informed that the BCCI was likely to send their reply about the proposed bilateral series between India and Pakistan by the end of October.

He, however, said that if the BCCI decides to postpone the series, then the PCB would have to look at other options.

Shahryar said that during the ICC meeting, he had emphasized that Pakistan would suffer huge financial losses if the series against India is postponed.

According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the PCB and the BCCI, both countries are scheduled to play six series under the 2015-2023 Future Tours Programme, subject to clearance from the Indian Government.

India have not played a full bilateral Test series with Pakistan since 2008 when the Mumbai terror attacks took place. (ANI)
