Khan: Pakistan will not play series India


PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan has insisted that Pakistan will only play against India in the UAE after he said the BCCI had offered to host the series between the two countries.

With political tensions between the two Asian countries on the rise, a bilateral series looks in jeopardy even though they were scheduled to meet, with Pakistan as the hosts, at the end of this year.

Khan cannot understand why India would not want to play in the UAE, as the first part of the Indian Premier League was staged in the desert country in 2014.

India hosted the last two bilateral series between the sides, in 2007 and 2012.

Khan said: "We went there in 2007 and 2012. This time not again. It is our series and we will play at our home venue which is the UAE.

"What is the problem playing in UAE as they had also played their IPL there as well so why not Pakistan series?"
