Lahore, May 12, 2017 (PPI-OT) Chairman PCB has clarified that his comment on agreeing to play in India was related to the contract between PCB and BCCI signed in 2014 according to which 6 bilateral series had been agreed over an 8 year period. Pakistan had agreed to host 4 series in Pakistan or any third country like UAE or Sri Lanka with mutual consent while India was to host 2 series in India. BCCI has failed to fulfill this contract as a result of which PCB has sent a legal notice to BCCI. Chairman had stated that PCB is ready to play in India despite security threats but only as part of the contract it has signed in 2014 with BCCI, in which it is clearly noted that first India will play Pakistan in Pakistan’s home series, be it in Pakistan or a neutral venue.
