The Indian government has sent a signal of its disapproval of the proposed India-Pakistan cricket series, even in a neutral venue like Sri Lanka, to the BCCI, reports the Hindustan Times.

The BCCI had sought the government’s permission for a short ODI and T20 series against Pakistan in Sri Lanka sometime after 15 December – a week after its ongoing series against South Africa and before the team travels to Australia in January. The Lanka series had seemed a certainty with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif giving it the nod on 26 November.

After several rounds of discussion and various venue possibilities, Sri Lanka had emerged as the top choice, while there has also been talk of a Test series in England sometime next year.
