Rajeev Shukla, who is also chairman of the IPL said that Pakistan needed to develop safe venues instead of agreeing to play in UAE.
"If Pakistan continues to play in UAE its cricket will slowly slowly suffer. Lahore can easily be made into a safe venue," Shukla said.
"If PCB makes Lahore a safe venue by constructing a team hotel near it and by providing adequate security than India will have no objection to playing in Lahore," he added.
But Shukla than clarified that India would be willing to play in Lahore if Pakistan gave the International Cricket Council proper security assurances and other member boards also had no objections to play there.
"If Lahore is made a safe venue than everyone will come and play there," said IPL chairman.
Shukla reminded about the MOU signed between the two boards last year admitted there was a MOU but noted it was signed when someone else headed the ICC and BCCI.
"Now our current President wants Pakistan and India to play against each other but in each other's countries," he added.
