The possibility of India touring Pakistan is still remote and United Arab Emirates (UAE) has emerged as the most likely destination for the bilateral series.

Srinivasan also established in an interview with a leading Indian daily that India and Pakistan will play four more series in the coming eight years.

"There has been a proposal to resume bilateral cricket ties between India and Pakistan. As I understand, there has been an agreement that the two teams will play each other," the former Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) was quoted as saying in a media report.

"As part of the restructuring of the FTP, India have agreed to play Pakistan in off-shore venues and as I understand, the BCCI working committee has agreed to it," Srinivasan said.

In good news for the cricket fans in India, Srinivasan said that India will get to host at least three main world events in next 8 years.

India had hosted the cricket World Cup in 2011 after a long gap of 15 years, and Srinivasan believes it is a major shot in the arm of the BCCI that three more major world events would be conducted in the country in next eight years.

Srinivasan said, “In the past, India used to get one ICC event in 16-18 years. We had the 2011 World Cup in India after 15 years and that we had to share with other countries.”

“Now three events will happen in eight years and that is very significant.” he added.

The 2015 T20 World Cup, the 2021 Champions Trophy and the 2023 World Cup will be the three major world events to take place in India in the coming eight years.
