PCB wants match in Mohali during India visit
31 August, 2012
LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has requested the BCCI to include Mohali in the list of venues for the eagerly-anticipated Pakistan-India series later this year.
The BCCI confirmed that they had received the request from the PCB and they would soon inform the PCB about their decision.
The PCB spokesman said that the board was still awaiting a reply from the BCCI on the request to have a match at Mohali. “The Indians had sent us a tentative itinerary for the three ODIs and two Twenty20 matches and we have formally requested them to have at least one match at Mohali,” he said. The PCB spokesman said the emphasis on having a match at Mohali had been made keeping in view that it was an easily accessible venue for the visitors from Pakistan. “Officially, we have confirmed our acceptance of the BCCI invitation to tour India for the short series but we are waiting for a response on the Mohali request. The rest of the venues are okay with us,” he added.
