NEW DELHI: The BCCI on Thursday said it had reminded the government a fortnight ago about the contentious issue of resuming bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan.
The Indian Cricket Board and Pakistan Cricket Board are scheduled to meet in Dubai later this month to resolve the prevailing bilateral issues.
Like many other board officials in the past, BCCI’s acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary too made it clear that the decision to play Pakistan in a bilateral series rests solely with the government.
“There is nothing new in the situation. We had written to the government seeking their permission to play Pakistan three months ago. We issued them a reminder 15 days ago. We are yet to get a reply. Only the government can decide whether we can play Pakistan or not,” Choudhary said.
