Najam Sethi—Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman and the Chief Operating Officer—Subhan Ahmed would be flying to Kolkata on April 21st to attend the International Cricket Council meeting (ICC).
The visit to India would be the first by the Pakistan Cricket Board delegation after Sethi and the ex-chairman—Shaharyar Khan travelled to Mumbai in the year 2015 to hold talks with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) representatives relating the bilateral cricketing ties between the two nations.
The talks were interrupted after strong protests were initiated by the activists of Shiv Sena—a right-wing political party, outside the Board of Control for Cricket in India headquarters.
The matter regarding resuming the bilateral series is still unresolved with the decision now to be taken by the ICC dispute resolution committee, which would start the hearing session of the case in October this year.
As per reports, ICC played a significant role in ensuring that the Pakistani delegation might face no problems in getting visas for this month amidst political tensions between the neighbours.
The meeting agenda includes discussion regarding the players’ discipline, forming of the ICC Cricket Committee, international cricket structure and a decision over the automatic qualification for the ICC World T20.
If the talks go successfully then it would be a great news for all the fans who love to watch India-Pakistan matches. India-Pakistan matches as everyone would agree are the most thrilling matches ever, because of the tension the two neighbours share.
