Is there still hope for the Indo-Pak bilateral series taking place next month?Reuters

Cricket fans will have to wait for a "couple of more days" to know the fate of the probable bilateral series between the two countries, according to BCCI.

The much-talked about bilateral series has dominated headlines in the last few months with politics and diplomacy keeping the fate of the series hanging.  

Fans never really came to know when the series would finally see the light of the day.

At a press conference on Thursday in Mumbai, BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said, "Wait for a couple of more days (on being asked to give some light on the fate of the bilateral series)."

"For any international event organised by ICC (International Cricket Council) or ACC (Asian Cricket Council), it's up to them [the boards] to decide which is going to be the venue. For a bilateral series it's upto the two nations to decide where they are comfortable," Thakur added.

Pakistan has rejected the prospect of playing the series on Indian soil and want the matches to be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). India, however, is not really keen on playing there.
