The board of control for cricket in India (BCCI) has requested the Indian government to allow them to host Pakistan’s women cricket team. However, the Indian Government is yet to give the green signal to BCCI on this matter.
India is likely to host Pakistan for an ODI series as part of the ICC Women’s Championship. PCB said that they have not received any instruction from BCCI.
ICC representative said that the governing bodies should decide which team got points in case if the series doesn’t happen.
As per the sources, the Indian board asked for permission from the federal government during political tension between the two countries. The Indian government has not issued any response regarding this matter which means they are not ready to give permission for this series. Because of the muted response of government BCCI may decide to excuse itself from this series.
ICC take the decision when they heard from BCCI and their final decision is based on the mutual agreement between two parties.
This is not the first time that Indian women teams lose their points because they refuse to visit Pakistan. In 2016 women team refuse to visit Pakistan was the cause of their fewer points.
