BCCI President Sourav Ganguly explains why bilateral series is not happening between India and Pakistan – Latest Cricket News


Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly has said that the restoration of bilateral series between India and Pakistan rests with the respective governments and not the cricket boards. It is worth mentioning that it has been a very long time since both the neighboring countries have played against each other except in ICC events. Both the countries played their last bilateral series in 2012. The Pakistani team played three ODIs and two T20 matches on this Indian tour. The ODI series was 2-1 in the name of Pakistan, while the T20 series was drawn 1-1.

Ganguly, in response to a question at the 40th Sharjah International Book Fair on Friday, cited diplomatic reasons as the reason behind India and Pakistan not having a bilateral series. He said that for this the permission and consent of the governments are needed and not the cricket boards. It is noteworthy that earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Rameez Raja had said that it is impossible to organize a bilateral series between India and Pakistan.
