BCCI mulls Pak series

New Delhi: The BCCI is exploring the possibility of playing a series against Pakistan at a neutral venue like Dubai or Sharjah in the near future.

India have not played any Test series against Pakistan since the 2007-08 home series because of strained relations, but were engaged in a short limited-overs series involving three ODIs and two T20 Internationals, with matches being played in Ahmedabad, Calcutta, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai in the 2012-13 season.

The issue of scheduling a series against Pakistan was briefly discussed at the emergent working committee meeting in Chennai on Thursday.

“Yes, there was a discussion about possibilities of playing against Pakistan at a neutral venue like Dubai, Sharjah or Abu Dhabi. But nothing has been finalised as of now. We are definitely looking at possibilities and are open to discussion with our PCB counterparts,” a senior BCCI office-bearer said on Friday. (PTI)
