Pakistan to host India in August 2013

The Pakistan Cricket Board has asked the West Indies Cricket Board to play a full series in July, so that it can host India in August 2013. The plan earlier was to split the series consisting of two Tests, five ODIs and a T20 International.

In an interview to PTI, a PCB source revealed,"The problem is now sorted out and our team will be touring (West Indies) in July as planned earlier. Pakistan is very hopeful and keen that India can be convinced to come to Pakistan because India has made it clear it does not have a policy of playing any bilateral series in a third country".

He added that the board was confident that the government would assure foolproof security to the Indian team,"Since bilateral ties have resumed after five years (asIndia and Pakistan are playing each other currently in India) and presently there is lot of positivity in relations between
the two boards, there is a good chance that India might listen to the suggestion of playing in August".

PCB chief Zaka Ashraf will leave for India soon later this week to hold discussions with the BCCI. Pakistan hasn't hosted any Test side at home, since a terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009. (YahooCricket)
