LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) hasn't lost hope of a bilateral series with India in December as the PCB chairman Shahryar Khan has written a letter to the BCCI to confirm, according to Indian media reports.
Earlier this year BCCI had signed an MOU(Memorandum of understanding) to play Pakistan in six series between 2015 and 2023, with the first to be hosted by the PCB in the UAE in December. The first between the South Asian rivals since 2007.
According to Indian media reports, Shahryar said the the boards should use cricket as a tool to formulate peace between the two nations. "Politics is vulnerable to highs and lows and the sport of cricket should be kept away from it," the Indian media quoted Khan as saying.
"Cricket is a tool to formulate peace between the countries." "We have given the broadcasting rights to Ten Sports and International Cricket Council (ICC) accepts the channel's bid," the PCB chief said.
However PCB has ruled out playing a home series in India as suggested by ICC President Zaheer Abbas a few days back. The series, if it happen will most likely take place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), after South Africa's tour of India beginning from October 2015.
