India cannot play Pakistan without government permission: BCCI official | Cricket News | Instant News

DELHI BARU: Control Board for Cricket in India (BCCI) has won a battle against Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) when his lawyers assured the ICC that the reason behind Indians not playing Pakistan in their ODI Championship rounds was clearly a case of not getting the necessary permits from the government.

Speaking to IANS, a BCCI official said that lawyers representing the Indian council had given the truth and the international body understood the scenario.

“Our lawyer explained to the ICC that for each tournament, we took permission from the government and it wasn’t just about playing Pakistan. So, if we didn’t get permission from the government, how could we play it? Just about explaining the scenario,” the official said.

The ICC technical committee hereby decides that the team will share points in all three series in ICC WomenChampionships that did not take place during the competition window and which saw India on Wednesday qualify for the 2021 Women’s World Cup.

The India-Pakistan series was originally scheduled for the sixth round of competition, between July and November 2019, but despite the best efforts of the two councils, that could not happen, the ICC said in a statement.

“In connection with India vs Pakistan series, TC concluded that the series could not be played due to Force Majeure events after BCCI showed that it could not obtain the necessary government permission to allow India to participate in a bilateral series against Pakistan, which is part of the ICC Women’s Championship, “reads media statements.

Interestingly, the head of the PCB Ehsan Mani on Tuesday confirmed that the Pakistan Cricket Board did not need BCCI to join hands with them.

“We have suffered losses but they (India) are not in our thinking or planning. It’s like Pies in the Sky situation. We have to live without them and we don’t need them to survive,” he said in a podcast released by the PCB media department.

“I am clear that if India does not want to play we must plan without them. Once or twice they have promised to play against us but step down at the last moment.”
