PESHAWAR 26 October: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday said atmosphere between Pakistan and India is not conducive for cricket right now.

The BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur told journalists in New Delhi that there is need to create good environment before resumption of the proposed bilateral series between the two countries.

Mr Thakur said the Pakistan government should talk to the Indian government for resumption of cricketing ties.

Talks between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan with the BCCI officials for proposed Pak-India bilateral cricket series in December were cancelled after Indian extremist party, Shiv Sena workers stormed the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai last Monday.

The PCB chairman after coming back to Pakistan had said Pakistan may consider boycotting the International Cricket Council (ICC) World T-20 scheduled to be held in India next year if India did not fill commitment of bilateral series.
