“Our stand has been the same in the last ten years. Unless we get approval from the government, we can’t have a bilateral series with Pakistan,” Shukla told Hindi newspaper Dainik Jagran. A newspaper in Pakistan had reported that the PCB had asked them to be prepared for the series. Shahid Afridi had also reacted to the report and had opined that the relations between the two countries can only be improved through cricket.
