By Nilabh Aole -

On Wednesday, the chief of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shahryar Khan reckoned that there are no chances of a cricket series with India till political ties between the two countries are this poor.

Khan explained, “Let me say it very categorically, there is no chance of a Pakistan vs India bilateral series unless the political ties between the two countries are improved. But as soon as political tension is defused, cricket will automatically resume.”

The two countries played their last international match in 2007 when Pakistan toured India to play three Tests and five ODIs. Though Pakistan toured India in 2012-13 for three ODIs and two T20Is.

Pakistan has requested that insisted that India should consider playing a home series that has been due since 2008. Talking about that, Khan said, “I believe things are gradually improving."

India-Pakistan ties plunged after a string of terror attacks on military facilities, including the Pathankot airbase and army camps in Uri and Nagrota.
