Karachi:

Resumption of India's bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan would be up for discussion in a BCCI meeting next month, the Indian Board's vice-President Rajeev Shukla has said.


"The series is on our agenda and we will make the final decision after assessing the pros and cons in our meeting. The series is scheduled for next year and there is still a lot of time left," Shukla told the 'Express Tribune' daily newspaper.

The BCCI and the Pakistan Cricket Board recently held a meeting in Hong Kong on the sidelines of the ICC annual conference in which resumption of bilateral cricket ties was discussed.

PCB chairman Ijaz Butt said Indian officials had assured they would get back with a response on resumption of bilateral ties after seeking some clarity from their government.

PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad told PTI that the board was following the announcement by All India Football Federation President Praful Patel that Pakistan and India's football teams would be playing a three-match series in the United Kingdom from August 25.
