The biggest cricket rivalry is probably on with India all set to face their neighbours, Pakistan but at a neutral venue. India Vs Pakistan series can take place in Sri Lanka this December.
India Vs Pakistan Cricket Series in Sri Lanka
BCCI and PCB have finally reached a decision about the proposed India Vs Pakistan Series. BCCI and PCB have agreed to organise the series between India and Pakistan at a neutral venue which is probably, Sri Lanka. UAE has been the home ground for Pakistan cricket after the terrorists attack on Sri Lankan team back in 2009 which has prohibited International cricket in Pakistan.
BCCI denied playing the team in UAE whereas organising cricket series against Pakistan in India is a worrying factor because of the protests by several organisations as did Shiv Sena at BCCI Office, Mumbai therefore a neutral venue was the only left option and Sri Lanka is an available choice for proposed India Vs Pakistan Series.
BCCI and PCB are now waiting for the respective government’s approval before official announcement of the cricket series between the cricketing rival nations. It’s been more than 2 years since India and Pakistan have played a bilateral series and upcoming series can prove to be a big treat for cricket lovers and especially Pakistan Cricket.
India Vs Pakistan Proposed Series 2015
India will play Pakistan from December 11 to 25 this year which includes 2 T20I and 3 ODI Matches in Sri Lanka. Premdasa and Candy cricket ground are likely to host these matches. Sri Lankan Cricket Board has given its approval to conduct the series in their stadiums which is likely to give them good financial support. India will end the series against South Africa by initial week of December which gives a free period till year end whereas Pakistan is about end their series against England thus India and Pakistan are free to play each other in the given time slot.
