Kolkata: Batting for the resumption of Indo-Pak cricketing ties, PCB chief Shaharyar Khan on Sunday said that Pakistan are ready to host a series in the UAE in December.

The series, which will involve three Tests, five ODIs and two T20s, is part of the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) signed between the two boards in 2014 and Shaharyar is keen to abide by it.

“We resume the India-Pak series in UAE. This is the re-beginning of the revival of Indo-Pak cricket. The series will start in December as per schedule and it will comprise three Tests, five ODIs and two T20s. The preparation is on in full swing. We have to overcome the final hurdle,” Shaharyar told reporters after meeting BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya.

Thanking his Indian counterpart for playing a pro-active role in trying to resume the most sought-after rivalry in world cricket, Shaharyar said his association with Dalmiya goes back a long way.

“I am really grateful to Dalmiya for hosting me here I am glad that we could start the process again. You may know as per the MOU there will be 5 series between the two countries in 8 years,” he said.

“I am thankful to Dalmiya. I come here personally to convey my heartiest congratulations to Jagmohan Dalmiya for becoming the BCCI President. My relationship with Dalmiya goes back a long way when he was the BCCI chief and I was PCB chief and we had hosted the 2004 Indo-Pak series. All this was made possible due to the effort of Dalmiya,” he added…. see more
