BCCI has invited PCB to send a team to take part in the Champions League. However, the team’s participation will once again depend on the clearance from the Indian government.

The Champions League is scheduled to take place in India in September and most of the Test playing nations are  expected to take part in this T20 tournament.

“We have sent a letter to the PCB a few days ago where we have invited them to take part in the Champions League. But we have also told them that their participation is subject to government clearance. The invitation has been sent so that we can book their place in the tournament. Later, we will start the process of taking permission from the ministry,” a BCCI official informed.

A few days back BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel, in an interaction with the media, too had said that the Indian board has no problem in resuming ties with Pakistan, but it will depend on government nod.

“We are ready to play cricket with them (Pakistan), be it in India or any part of the world. But first our government should clear the tour. All Pakistan series will need government approval,” Patel had said.

At the previous edition of the CLT20 in India, Faisalabad Wolves made a last-minute entry and were knocked out in the qualifiers. If everything works out to plan, then Lahore Lions – Pakistan’s domestic T20 champions, led by Mohammad Hafeez, could take part in the tournament.
