LAHORE: England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has offered to host the Pakistan-India Test series in the future. 

According to an England media report, ECB has contacted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to be a neutral host for a Test series between the two arch-rivals in future. 

"England have offered to be a neutral host for future Pakistan-India Test series opening the possibility of the two countries playing bilateral cricket for the first time in more than 15 years," the media outlet claimed. 

Later on, sources in the PCB confirmed to Geo.tv about this development. "ECB has contacted us in this regard."

"It's an unofficial offer and nothing was accepted. PCB wishes to host India as it's Pakistan's turn officially," the source further said. 

Pakistan and India have never played a Test match since 2007. The two teams last met in a bilateral white-ball series back in 2012-13.
