    But the main problem in this case is the venue. A team is usually the host in a bilateral series. It is almost certain that India will not want to play in Pakistan under the auspices of Pakistan. Similarly, Pakistan may object to playing in India.
    The India-Pakistan bilateral series has been closed for a long time, capitalizing on such doubts. However, this time the Dubai Cricket Association showed the way to BCCI and PCB. The elite cricket governing body has expressed interest in hosting the India-Pakistan bilateral series as a neutral venue.
    Abdur Rahman, chairman of Dubai Cricket, says: "It would be great to have an India-Pakistan match here. Long ago, when the India-Pakistan match was played in Sharjah, it felt like a war."
    Interestingly, the Dubai cricket official sees this war positively. So they want to make that battlefield to be held on their own ground.
    He added, "But it’s a good fight, Sporting is a fight that was great. I remember Raj Kapoor (an Indian actor) once came here with his family and said that it was great to have an India-Pakistan match in Sharjah. Cricket brings people closer. Cricket has made us one and let it be so. That's what we want to do. "
    The Dubai Cricket boss hopes to host India-Pakistan bilateral series at least once in two years.
    He said, "We want to do that. It would be great if we could persuade India to come here once or twice a year and play against Pakistan. "
