BCCI apologised to PCB for the cancellation of Mumbai meeting after Shiv Sena protested

The Indian cricket board BCCI apologised to Pakistan Cricket Board for the protest outside the cricket boards’ headquarters in Mumbai on October 20 that eventually led to the cancellation of  the meeting between the two boards’ official.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan and PCB advisory committee head Najam Sethi came in India to discuss potential bilateral cricket ties between the two countries. But, Shiv Sena ensured that it did not take place on October 20. 

Terming the Shiv Sena’s protest as ‘condemnable act’, the BCCI sent a letter to PCB that said BCCI is extremely sorry for the incident in Mumbai.

The reaction came after the demand by former Pakistan players to boycott the 2016 World T20 in India if the host does not   play the proposed bilateral series in UAE against Pakistan, the Express Tribune reported.

Legendary Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad has earlier insisted that the PCB should boycott next year’s World T20 in India.  

Meanwhile, the BCCI has also written a letter to the Indian Government asking for approval regarding the proposed series against Pakistan in the UAE in December.

According to the ICC Future, Tour Programme India and Pakistan are scheduled to play six series between 2015 and 2023 after a clearance from the Indian movement. Pakistan government already gave the green signal about the series.

According to a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the PCB and BCCI, both countries are scheduled to play six series between 2015 and 2023 after a clearance from the Indian Government.

The bilateral series between India and Pakistan did not materialise after the 2008 Mumbai terrorist tack. Though, Pakistan once visited India for a short tour in 2012-2013.
