No Indian govt. nod to BCCI yet for resumption of Indo-Pak series: PCB chief

Islamabad, Fri, 03 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 3 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf has said the Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI) has not yet been given clearance by the Indian Government to resume cricketing ties with Pakistan.


He made the announcement after meeting with BCCI chief N. Srinivasan in Dubai during an the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting.


"We want to resume cricketing ties with India, but he (Srinivasan) told me that his board is facing problems in getting clearance from the government," The News quoted Ashraf, as saying.


India was scheduled to play a test series in Pakistan in end of 2008, but it was cancelled following the Mumbai terror attacks that killed 166 people.


The PCB has been organizing home series at offshore venues since 2009, after gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka team bus at Lahore, killing six police officials and a van driver.


But Ashraf, who took charge in October, is hopeful that Bangladesh will visit Pakistan for a one-day series in April.


A security delegation from Bangladesh is expected to visit Pakistan this month to make assessments. (ANI)
