PESHAWAR, 29 October: Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board  Shaharyar Khan has received a letter from President BCCI, Mr. Shashank Manohar, regarding the cancellation of their meeting in Mumbai.

According to PCB website Mr. Manohar has expressed his sincere regrets for the cancellation of the meeting between officials from the two boards. Under pressure from extremist elements, BCCI cancelled its meeting with PCB officials which was scheduled to take place in Mumbai. It has also been conveyed that the BCCI has officially approached the Indian government to obtain definitive guidance on the Pakistan-India series.

The PCB maintains that sports and politics should not be mixed, and hopes that the BCCI will not be held hostage by extremist elements who wish to sabotage bilateral cricket relations. The series, scheduled to be held in UAE at the end of this year, is part of an MOU signed between PCB and BCCI.

A three-member PCB delegation led by Shaharyar Khan went to India to discuss with BCCI president Shashank Manohar to confirm  whether India was willing to play the series.

However, around 40 to 50 workers of  Shiv Sena party disrupted the scheduled meeting at BCCI head office in Mumbai.
