Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president Amit Shah on Saturday categorically stated that India and Pakistan will not feature in any bilateral cricket series but would continue to participate in international tournaments.
"BCCI should come out with a proposal on Pakistan only after consultations with the government. I have already made it clear that any bilateral series with Pakistan is almost impossible because there cannot be sports relations between the two countries until there is terrorism from the Pakistani side," Goel has said last month in the national capital.
Goel, however, added that there was no control of the government on multilateral games.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had earlier last month sent a legal notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for failing to honour the MoU signed between the two cricket boards in 2014.
The PCB had also demanded compensation close to USD 60 million from the BCCI for not honouring the MoU signed when N. Srinivasan was at the helm of affairs in the Indian board.
The two Asian neighbours have not played a full bilateral series after the Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008.
