Resumption of cricket with Pakistan subject to Government approval: Ganguly

The newly appointed president of BCCI, Sourav Ganguly expressed his opinion about Pakistan vs India series. Ganguly has made it clear that the resumption of bilateral cricket ties with arch-rivals Pakistan is totally dependent on approval from India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his counterpart Imran Khan.

The former Indian captain was asked about the chances of Pakistan vs India bilateral series. Replying to the question, Ganguly said that the resumption of cricket between the two countries subject to government approval. 

"Of course, we have to take permission, because international tours are all through governments. So, we don't have an answer to that question," the former India captain added.


Pakistan and India have not faced each other in a full-fledge bilateral series since 2007. The arch-rivals met each other in the last bilateral series in 2012 in India. 

Since then, the ice has piled up between the two neighboring countries. The fans desperately want to see the arch-rivals play each other, but the political turmoil does not allow the ice to melt.
