PCB wants a match in Mohali during Indo-Pak series
Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board has requested the BCCI to include Mohali in the list of venues for the eagerly-anticipated Indo-Pak series later this year.
PCB sources told PTI that the Board was still awaiting a reply from the BCCI on the request to have a match at Mohali.
"The Indians had sent us a tentative itinerary for the three ODIs and two T20 matches and we have formally requested them to have atleast one match at Mohali," one source said.
He said the emphasis on having a match at Mohali had been made keeping in view that it is an easily accessible venue for the visitors from Pakistan.
In the past, Pakistani visitors have found it easier to go to Mohali to watch matches due to its close proximity by road to the Wagah border.
"Officially we have confirmed our acceptance of the BCCI invitation to tour India for the short series but we are waiting for a response on the Mohali request. The rest of the venues are okay with us."
The BCCI has not scheduled any matches in Mumbai and picked Bangalore, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Delhi among the venues to host the matches.
Normally it is the prerogative of the host board to finalise the venues for a series.
