Indian government refuses permission to Pakistani Board?
ISLAMABAD - The bilateral cricket series between Pakistan and Indian women teams has fallen in jeopardy due to the current political tensions between the two countries.
The political ties between the two arch-rivals are at an extremely low point after Narendra Modi’s government abrogated Article 370 from their constitution that ended the special status of Indian Occupied Kashmir’s.
India are to host Pakistan in a bilateral series, which is a part of ICC Championship, between July and November. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has asked for the permission from the government, but the request has not been answered yet.
According to PCB’s spokesperson, the BCCI has not contact the Pakistani board so far. If the BCCI does not host the series in India, the matter of points table will be addressed by the ICC.
Previously, India were to play three ODIs against Pakistan women team in 2016, which they refused to play on political grounds, as a result, ICC award six points to the Women in Green.
