BCCI’s meeting with PCB chief cancelled after Shiv Sena workers staged a protest inside BCCI office 

Shiv Sena workers on Monday stormed the office of the Indian Cricket governing body Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in Mumbai to protest BCCI officials’ meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board chief Shahryar Khan.

After receiving the formal invitation from the president of BCCI Shashank Manohar, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan and executive committee chief Najam Sethi arrived in India on Sunday in a bid to revive the cricket ties between the two neighboring countries. India and Pakistan, who shared a willy-nilly relationship, are scheduled to play in December.

“The trip is being made on the invitation of Shashank Manohar who took over as the new Indian cricket chief,” an official in the PCB said.

Shaharyar and Sethi were scheduled to meet BCCI chief Manohar, BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur and other government officials.

Meanwhile, BCCI decided to move out of Mumbai in a bid to hold the meeting with PCB chief in Delhi. 

“The PCB is mentally prepared to even settle for a shorter series but want it to be Pakistan’s home series and in the UAE,” a PCB source was quoted as saying by PTI.

Khan also discussed the planned series with BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur on the sidelines of the ICC meeting in Dubai. Thakur had assured him a final decision could be taken later this month and conveyed Manohar’s invitation to visit India to Shaharyar.

A reliable source in the PCB said Khan and Sethi had both gone to India after holding discussions with the government’s National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz.
