A top official of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) says he does not see any Indo-Pak bilateral series taking place next year owing to the strained relations between the two countries.
Najam Sethi on Sunday said that it was highly unlikely Pakistan and India will play a bilateral series next year. “I don’t think it will happen because of the current scenario which will take time to change. But I also don’t think India will avoid playing us in the Champions Trophy next year in England,” he said.
Asked about a likely move by Ministry of Inter Provincial Coordination to boycott all sporting ties with India in India, Sethi said if the government issued directives to this effect the PCB will follow them.
“We will only agree to not playing on Indian soil. But if India agrees to matches with us on a neutral venue of our choice, which we host, then we will play them,” he said.
