The invitation was extended by BCCI President Sourav Ganguly
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja has been invited to watch the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly.
However, Raja won’t be attending the final according to sources.
The invitation was extended on the sidelines of the Asian Cricket Council’s Executive Board meeting on Friday.
The final of the cash-rich league, between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings, will take place today at the Dubai International Stadium.
Ganguly and Raja also discussed areas of mutual interest, during the informal meeting, which included strengthening of Asian block.
It must be noted that Pakistan will take on India in the upcoming T20 World Cup on October 24 in Dubai.
The last time India and Pakistan played a bilateral series was back in 2012, when the former hosted the Men in Green for a limited-overs series — which had two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and three One-day International (ODIs).
