PCB rejects BCCI’s offer to play in India.

The much awaited Cricket series between India and Pakistan remains in doubt after both sides again failed to reach an agreement on where the matches should be played.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) wants to stage the matches in the United Arab Emirates, which has been the team's "home" base since 2009 because of ongoing security concerns in their homeland that prevents international teams from visiting.

But the Board of Control for Cricket in Indian (BCCI) said the Indian government would not permit its team to play Pakistan in the UAE, so the series would have to be played in India.

The two arch rivals of cricket, signed a memorandum of understanding in 2014 that Pakistan would host their next series after India had staged their previous two meetings.

The PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan, said he was still waiting for an explanation as to why the Indian government was opposed to its team playing in UAE but was adamant that Pakistan would not go to India.

He also hinted that Pakistan's participation in the World Twenty20 in India next year is in doubt, saying that it is not decided whether they would take part in the tournament.
