A reliable source in the PCB said that stung by whatever had transpired in the last two to three months by way of the planned bilateral series between Pakistan and India in December the PCB had now decided to change its policy.
     
"The PCB has also got feelers from the government to remain quiet on Indo-Pak cricket ties," the source said.
     
"They have been told that the surprise visit by Indian Prime Minister Narendar Modi to Lahore which had led to a thaw in tensions between the two countries could lead to restoration of bilateral cricket ties as well," the source disclosed.
     
"But the PCB has been told not to speak anymore on planned series and wait until some announcement comes from India," he stated.
     
According to the source there is hope that the Indian cricket board will get permission from its government to play cricket with Pakistan and they could then agree to play three ODIs and three T20 matches in England in 2016.
