PCB mulls other options for home series after Indian refusal
NEW DELHI – Uncertain about India honouring the MoU signed between cricket boards of the two nations, Pakistan have already started working on a contingency plan for winter this year and are in talks with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka for a bilateral home series, Indian state-run PTI reported on Monday.
As per the MOU signed between the BCCI and PCB, India and Pakistan are scheduled to play a full Test series in December this year.
But with India refusing to play Pakistan in a full bilateral Test series since 2007, the PCB is confident it can host Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the slot reserved for the series against Virat Kohli and his men.
“Hopefully we will see either Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in Pakistan this winter,” Najam Sethi, who heads the executive board of the PCB said on Monday.
“We have opened up discussions with them and are confident now after the successful hosting of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final in Lahore,” he said.
