BCCI has officially confirmed the much hyped India- Pakistan bilateral series. Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajiv Shukla revealed the tentative date of the series which will be held in Sri Lanka from December 15.

“India-Pakistan series will happen tentatively from Dec 15 in Sri Lanka”, Rajiv Shukla met the press in Mumbai on behalf of BCCI.

The much-hyped series has been finalised after months-long negotiations between BCCI and PCB. India did not play a full bilateral series against Pakistan since 2007. A short series was played in India in 2012. But, political tension and diplomatic hiccup between two neighbours have been a barrier between the cricket ties. 



BCCI also said, “As part of MOU between India and Pakistan Board, BCCI has to do the formality of sending the invite to PCB.”

But, the announcement of series vehemently criticised as the Indian citizen took the twitter and expressed disappointment as the series has been announced on the day anniversary of deadly 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack. 

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has already approved the series.But, BCCI yet to get the official clearance from India government. 

A BCCI insider said, “BCCI has approached the MEA for the approval but the Government will take the final call-BCCI Sources to ANI on Indo-Pak series.” “BCCI has not received any response from the Government yet”, the source added.
