Indo-Pak series: Playing in backup venues SL, Bangladesh on BCCI's mind

New Delhi: Should BCCI and PCB go ahead with the proposed Indo-Pak series in December, like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are being considered as venues to host the matches.

Since the Indian board is opposed to the idea of playing in UAE and Pakistan government has cited security concerns to prohibit its cricket team from playing in India, BCCI officials in their recent meetings have discussed holding the series in the neighboring countries.

Should Shashank Manohar could discuss this matter with Pakistani counterpart Shaharyar Khan in order to break the impasse, reports the Times of India.

“The only glitch in this proposal is that if the series happens in one of these countries, UAE could get offended. Otherwise, the option of playing the series is certainly on BCCI's mind,“ a source close to the development told TOI.
