Pakistan to play bilateral series with India

3:06 pm on 22 October 2012

The Pakistan Cricket Board has postponed a tour to Zimbabwe in December in anticipation of a bilateral one-day series against India - the first since 2008.

A senior official of the board says under the future tour programme of the International Cricket Council, Pakistan were due to visit Zimbabwe for a test and one-day series in December.

However, Pakistan have been invited by the Indian board to play three one-day internationals and two T20 matches in December and have asked to tour Zimbabwe next year.

Bilateral cricket between the nuclear-armed neighbours were snapped after the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed. India blame Pakistan-based militants for the incident.
