Friday 16 October 2015

PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan has said BCCI President Shashank Manohar has invited him for talks on the proposed Indo-Pak cricket series.

"Since he was not at the ICC meeting I phoned him and he invited me to tour India after a Working Committee meeting of the BCCI and I hope to get a final answer in eight to 10 days," Khan said at a media conference in Lahore.

"The new President of the Indian board Shashank Manohar has assured us that he is keen on having Indo-Pak series and on resolving all issues between the two boards. We have stressed on the need to further improve relations between the two Boards," Khan said.

The PCB chief said as far as Pakistan was concerned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had already given a go-ahead that cricket must be played between the two nations.

"So there is no delay on our side we are ready. The ball is now in the court of the Indian Board," he said.
