According to a report on cricketnext, BCCI chief CK Khanna confirmed that the Board had sent a mail to the Home Ministry seeking clearance for the same, and added that the issue will be further discussed in the Special General Meeting (SGM), to be held on 9 April in New Delhi.
He noted that in the last few years, Pakistan had made all efforts to get India to resume playing bilateral series, but with no success. Under Anil Kumble's captaincy back in 2007, the Indians clinched the previous Test series (1-0 at home) that they played against their bitter rivals.
The result, which gave South Africa a 1-0 series win, earned Faf du Plessis's side two ranking points and helped them move one point ahead of Australia into second place.
As they headed off for the four-match series in India many, including former test off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, predicted a repeat of the 4-0 whitewash they suffered in 2013. "Our players will now take a well-earned break, before we look forward to the ICC Champions Trophy in England", Peever concluded. The two cricketing nations also clashed at the Asia Cup T20 and the World T20, with India emerging victorious on all three occasions.
