We all are aware of the fact that the future of the India vs Pakistan bilateral series lies in the hands of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The series just needs a green signal from the Indian Prime Minister and the cricket-loving fans from both the neighbouring nations will have plenty of reasons to rejoice.

The stage is completely set for the India vs Pakistan series. Sri Lanka Cricket has welcomed the decision of making the series happen in the Lankan island. They have also allotted two stadiums for the series. The Pakistani Prime Minister is believed to be a fan of the international game and he has given a go to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to go ahead and play the limited over series against India later this month in Sri Lanka.

PCB is still waiting for PM Modi to give his answer as time is running out for making the much-anticipated series happen.

"We are still waiting for an answer and confirmation from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). It is clear that this matter is now in the hands of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and he will give clearance for the series," PCB chief Shahryar Khan told reporters in Lahore on Thursday. 

"We are preparing to work round the clock to have this series but it is also something the Indians now need to think about." 

Pakistan's head coach Waqar Younis also felt that India and Pakistan should continue playing against each other. Earlier, Pakistan's T20 skipper Shahid Afridi also stated that the cricketing ties between the two nations should not stop. 

"I think Pakistan and India need to play more against each other. As far as performances is concerned India is also doing well in Test cricket like we have done but they have also struggled like us in the limited over matches," Younis told reporters. 

"So it would be an interesting series for both teams. But we are prepared to play whenever the Boards give the go-ahead."
