BCCI has said while a series at a neutral venue is possible, the Indian government's approval is important.


Karachi: The PCB chairman Najam Sethi has sought the support of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in turning a six bilateral series agreement with the Board of Control for Cricket in India into a reality.

Sethi called on the PM in Islamabad on Wednesday to brief him about the recent developments at the ICC annual meeting in Melbourne where the Pakistan and Indian boards signed the agreement to play six series starting from next year in the new future tours program.

"Najam Sethi made it clear to the prime minister that he and the government will have to fully support the PCB and play a big role in convincing the Indian government to give clearance for the series," a reliable source close to Sethi told PTI.
