It definitely seems like India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Pakistan has done wonders to the cricketing ties of both the nations. As per sources within the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), a limited overs series between arch rivals India and Pakistan is being planned. The series is scheduled to be played in England in mid-2016 and if things go well, viewers might once again witness the magic of the epic rivalry.

“The series could happen in England sometime in June as the IPL is from April 9 to May 29 and both teams will have a window in June,” a high-ranking source in the PCB was quoted saying. “Pakistan also played a “home” series against Australia in England in 2010 when they last toured England for a full series,” the source added.

The unnamed source also said that the ECB President Giles Clarke was intervening in order to ensure the success of the proposed series. “Pakistan also played a “home” series against Australia in England in 2010 when they last toured England for a full series.” “But the PCB has been told not to speak any more on planned series and wait until some announcement comes from India,” the source distinctly said.

“They (PCB) have been told that the surprise visit by Indian Prime Minister Narendar Modi to Lahore which had led to a thaw in tensions between the two countries could lead to restoration of bilateral cricket ties as well,” the source said, when quizzed about the sudden talks of the resumption of the rivalry.
