The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) could face legal action if they do not go ahead with the proposed series between India and Pakistan. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has mooted the idea of the bilateral series taking place in Sri Lanka, after BCCI showed apprehension about playing in United Arab Emirates, Pakistan's adopted cricket home.

However, the tour which was as per plan set to be played in mid-December hasn't got BCCI or Indian government's approval as yet.

The Indian cricket board had committed to play two Tests, five One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and two T20Is against the neighbors at UAE or mutually-agreed venue in December 2015.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has given the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) just another day's time to confirm India's participation in the bilateral series against Pakistan. The Pakistan-India series, which was planned to be played in Sri Lanka in mid-December, needs BCCI's go-ahead. A PCB official said that if they don't get a confirmation by Monday (December 7), PCB won't have adequate time to make the required arrangements.
