New Delhi: Fans can expect a final decision on the India-Pakistan cricket series today after chiefs of both boards held talks in Dubai on Sunday.
According to a report on IBNLive, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) president Giles Clarke is likely to conduct a press conference to discuss the outcome of the meeting between BCCI and PCB.
Clarke too was part of the meeting between Shashank Manohar and Shaharyar Khan as a facilitator.
The discussions held at the ICC office in Dubai have drastically improved the prospects of the much-anticipated series, claimed the report.
India has refused to play in UAE, while Pakistan is not willing to play in India. With such a scenario prevailing, neighbouring Sri Lanka is being considered as a neutral venue to host the series, which could comprise of five ODIs and two T20Is.
However, final outcome is subject to approval from the Indian government.
Pakistan and India have not played a full bilateral series since 2007. They played a short limited overs series in 2012-13.
