Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) managing director Wasim Khan is optimistic that bilateral series between India and Pakistan will resume in the near future.
Pakistan and India’s last bilateral series was when the men in green toured India for three ODIs between December 2012 and January 2013.
However, Wasim noted that relations between the PCB and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has improved over the last few months.
“Unfortunately bilateral cricket ties between the two countries is governed and influenced by political and diplomatic ties. But we are hopeful that things are moving in the right direction now,” Wasim was quoted as saying by www.bdcrictime.com. “I think we will see [the] ice melt in coming months and progress [is] being made now. It is important for both countries to have regular bilateral cricket ties.
“Another indicator came at the last Asian Cricket Council meeting when [the] India delegates supported giving [the] hosting rights to Pakistan for next year’s Asia Cup T20 event.”
