New Delhi: Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla on Monday said that the Indian government should either give its clearance on proposed Indo-Pak series or decide against it.

The senior BCCI functionary said that the government shouldn't delay the matter as it has two options with it.

The final decision regarding the future of the series is pending with the Indian government after a green signal was given by Nawaz Sharif recently.

Earlier, Shukla confirmed that Sri Lanka had been decided as the neutral venue for the much-anticipated series between the neighbouring countries.

Notably, Najam Sethi was chairman of the board when the PCB and BCCI signed a MOU last year under which the two countries agree to play six series against each other between 2015 and 2023 with Pakistan hosting the first series in December this year in UAE.

India has not played a full bilateral Test series with Pakistan after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
