India and Pakistan are set to restart their cricket rivalry with a bilateral Test series in December 2015, as per reports. Although any series between India and Pakistan are subject to the political conditions, it is unlikely that India will travel to Pakistan to play. In the past few years, UAE has been Pakistan’s ‘home’ ground.
As per ICC’s Future Tours Programme draft, Pakistan will play four more full-length series against India over the next 8 years.“There has been a proposal to resume bilateral cricket ties between India and Pakistan. As I understand, there has been an agreement that the two teams will play each other,” ICC chief N Srinivasan told on yesterday. BCCI has also confirmed the news. “We have set an eight-year plan and are working towards it,” a source from the BCCI said.
Srinivasan also suggested towards the India-Pakistan series being played in UAE by talking about the possibility of an offshore venue for the matches. “As part of the restructuring of the FTP, India have agreed to play Pakistan in off-shore venues and as I understand, the BCCI working committee has agreed to it,” said Srinivasan.
