KARACHI: 

India has invited Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Zaka Ashraf for the IPL final.

The development comes after the BCCI gave a positive response to Pakistan’s participation in the Champions League Twenty20 — after the country’s team was the only major Test-playing nation to not have  teams in either the qualifiers or the main round of the event since it started in 2009.

Ashraf, who is currently in London, will travel to Chennai on a two-day visit.  “This is a good gesture,” Ashraf told The Express Tribune. “I will also bring up the bilateral series issue and hopefully we can resume matches between the two teams soon.”
