Security clearance is not a issue for Indo-Pak series in India
The Home Ministry of India has not received any communication from the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) for the issue of security clearance between India and Pakistan, possibly because the matches may not be held in India.
Security clearance should be green signalised from the Home Ministry before any international match is being played in the country.
According to the sources, as the India-Pakistan cricket series is unlikely to be held in the country, the BCCI has not approached the Home Ministry.
If the series is going to be held in a third country, the first clearance has to be come from the MEA (Ministry of External Affairs) office.
After the MEA clearance, the Home Ministry may send an advance security liaison team to the country where it may be held.
The BCCI is waiting to get green signal from the Indian government for the most-awaited series, which is looking to be occurred at the next month; while Pakistan Cricket Board has got the clearance from their government.
IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla said on Thursday that the game should not be brought into political controversies.
He said both Boards have agreed on Sri Lanka as a venue.
