The Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) has on Wednesday, extended another two days of time for the Indian Government to decided over the proposed India-Pakistan series. PCB Chairman, Mr Shahryar Khan said that the PCB may call off the much-awaited series if it did not get the Indian Government’s approval within two days.
“The governing council of PCB is willing to extend another two days of time to get India’s consent over the Indo-Pak series. After that the series will be off”, Shahryar Khan said.
The PCB chairman also admitted that the chances of a series look very slim in the present scenario. “To be honest, after learning that the Indo-Pak series never came up for discussion in the meeting between the Pakistan Prime Minister and the Indian External affairs minister, we feel that the chances of a series to be held in Srilanka is vary narrow”, he said.
Mr Khan added that the PCB may lose more than USD 40 million if the series is called off.
As per the sources, Pakistan Cricket Board may consider going legally against BCCI, if the series does not take place as per the MoU signed between the two boards and Pakistan may even pull out of the T20 World Cup to be held in India next year.
