The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), wrote a letter to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), apologizing for what happened during meeting of the two boards officials in Mumbai.
BCCI writes the letter in the wake of former Pakistani players’ bid to cancel participation in the World Twenty2- next year in India.
As quoted in a local daily, quoting BCCI as saying that ‘they are sorry for what happened in Mumbai.”
According to the sources, BCCI said in the letter that the protest by Shiv Sena was condemnable act.
Previously, in a relatively positive move, BCCI approached the Indian government when they wrote letter to the highest authorities seeking approval concerning the series against Pakistan in the UAE.
BCCI is expected to be responded by the government in mid-November.
Earlier, PCB chairman Shahryar Khan visited Mumbai on after being invited by BCCI president Shashank Manohar to discuss the UAE series and resolve the hindrance between the cricket series.
The meeting was ended without any cut and dry conclusion in the wake of Shiv Sena’s protest and storming the BCCI office in Mumbai, causing PCB officials to leave for Pakistan without any formal affirmation for the series.
Meanwhile, PCB once again wrote a letter to BCCI inquiring about the date and venue of the rescheduled meetings to take the matter to next level.
