New Delhi: The future of the proposed Indo-Pak series appears bleak as it highly unlikely that the series will take place in December.
According to CNN IBN, the talks between the two cricketing boards have also been deferred indefinitely.
Meanwhile, IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla met PCB chief Shahryar Khan earier in the day in New Delhi where he said that people should not jump to conclusions as there are a lot of statements being made about the future of the proposed bilateral Indo-Pak series.
"It was a courtesy call, we exchanged pleasantries, there were no official talks. Whatever talks happen will be done by the BCCI President, he will take a final call on these matters," Shukla said after meeting Khan.
"The series, whether it will happen or not, where it will happen, how it will happen, will be decided only after talks, if at all the talks take place.
"We should not jump to conclusions. Process of dialogue should be on. When that dialogue will happen is upto the BCCI President," he said.
Khan's meeting with BCCI president Shashank Manohar in Mumbai couldn't capitalise on Monday as a result of a protest by Shiv Sena workers, who attacked BCCI headquarters at Wankhede Stadium.
The PCB Chairman is seeking a meeting with Union Finance Minister Arun jaitley to discuss the matter but there is no confirmation on that as yet. He is also expected to meet former union minister and NCP leader Sharad Pawar.
