The Indian Cricket Governing Body BCCI is considering Bangladesh and  Sri Lanka for the potential series against Pakistan in December.

The BCCI have been unwilling to play the series in the UAE, which has been Pakistan’s adopted home since 2009 terrorist attack on Sri Lankan players in Lahore. According to sources, official have been discussing these two options in recent meetings. A source told the Times of India that the option of playing the series is definitely on the BCCI’s mind should the series get the green signal.

However, the idea of the December series shelved in cold storage as BCCI president and ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar avoided a meeting in Dubai with PCB chief as Shahryar Khan left Dubai when Manohar landed in Dubai airport.

 

 

 

One source stated, “The meeting did not take place because there was simply no intent.”

It is now widely known that Manohar is unwilling to play the matches in UAE as there is a notion that venue is not safe for India. Manohar even was against the decision to shift the first phase of IPL 2014 in UAE.

Manohar said UAE’s reputation as a cricket playing nation was disgraced when betting and spot-fixing indicates clouded the cricket in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

So, After Manohar’s took the office of BCCI it was observed that the newly elected board president is enthusiastic about the series, but not in UAE. One of the influential persons in the board Rajiv Shukla said India is agreed to play Pakistan in Lahore if they managed a stage a safe venue for India.
