Newly appointed BCCI Chief Jagmohan Dalmiya wants that Indo-Pak cricket ties, which are expected to begin in December this year, should be held in India, with the first Test match in Kolkata.

Last week, both BCCI and PCB formally agreed to resume the bilateral cricketing ties and as per the sources, both signed a pact, wherein they are supposed to compete with each other in 5 bilateral series in a span of 8 years. The first series is expected to take place in UAE later this year but with Dalmiya’s wants, the decision could go either way. 

“If the approval of the government is required, fine, but we should make a very clear decision…the world wants to see Pakistan and India playing each other,” PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan told NDTV after meeting Mr Dalmiya in Kolkata on May 10.

Khan also admitted that the security situation in Pakistan is not suitable to host a full series and that’s why they have proposed the series in UAE. 

He said: 

“The security situation (in Pakistan) is improving fast but we know that right now India would not be able to come for a full tour. We therefore have decided that we’d play in the UAE.” 

Pakistan have not hosted international cricket since the attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009. Due to this, they have forced to play their home matches in UAE. 

Luckily, Zimbabwe agreed to tour Pakistan for three ODIs and two T20s starting from May 22, but their participation is in doubt now because of the fire that broke out in Karachi today and killed 47 people.
