Karachi, June 27: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday (June 26) confirmed that India and Pakistan will play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023 after the Memorandum of Understandings with BCCI were turned into "binding agreements".
In a statement released by PCB, the MoUs were turned into "binding agreements" at the ICC Annual Conference in Melbourne yesterday. At the same Conference, BCCI's suspended President N Srinivasan was confirmed as ICC's first Chairman after the revamp.
"Pakistan has made extraordinarily significant gains at the International Cricket Council's (ICC) annual meeting at Melbourne Thursday," PCB said.
"Of the three major concessions that PCB Chairman Mr. Najam Sethi was able to secure to Pakistan's great advantage are: After N. Srinivasan's election as the first ICC Chairman in a landslide, India has officially turned the MOUs signed earlier this year with regard to six rubbers between the two nations, four of these to be hosted by the PCB in the UAE or Pakistan with mutual consent, into binding agreements straightaway. The six tours are now part of the Future Tours Programme and are to be played from 2015 to 2023," PCB added.
The last bilateral series between the arch rivals was in December 2012-January 2013 when Pakistan travelled to India for a short limited overs series.
