India announce plans for Pakistan series
Monday 16 July 2012
India are ready to renew bilateral cricketing ties with Pakistan after today confirming plans to invite their neighbours for a “short series” later this year.
India, who last faced Pakistan in a series five years ago, did not give many details about the make-up of the series but said it would be held in December and January.
Following a meeting in Delhi today, the Board of Control for Cricket in India announced in a statement on their website: "It was decided to resume cricketing ties with Pakistan by inviting the Pakistan cricket team for a short series in December 2012 - January 2013. The modalities will be worked out shortly."
Pakistan last toured India in 2007 when they played three Tests.
India had been scheduled to tour Pakistan at the start of 2009 but that was cancelled in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008.
Since their last Test meeting, the two rivals have faced each other in eight one-day internationals. Two of those were played in Pakistan in 2008, with five more being played in South Africa, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The other ODI was last year's World Cup semi-final in India.
