Lahore: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has informed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that it needs fresh permission from new Indian government to resume bilateral series with Pakistan, Shaharyar M. Khan said on Monday.

Shaharyar who had a word with  India and Bangladesh cricket boards during ICC meeting in Dubai, said, “the BCCI officials in Dubai assured us that they remain committed to the MoUs [ensuring revival of bilateral series] signed with the PCB [when PM Manmohan Singh-led government gave its go-ahead for the series.

The two countries played a bilateral series when Misbah-ul-Haq and company toured India for a short limited-overs series (comprising three ODIs and two Twenty20s) in Dec-Jan 2012-13. Pakistan won the ODI series 2-1 while the T20 rubber ended in 1-1 stalemate.

It was hoped that these limited-overs games would help resume bilateral cricket between the traditional rivals. The bilateral series were  suspended after Pakistan visited India for a full series in 2007 — following the November 2008 terror attack in Mumbai.

Last year, Pakistan signed MoUs with the BCCI for six bilateral series to be held during next eight years, with Pakistan staging four of them.
