In the current scenario, the bilateral series between India and Pakistan is not possible, Sports Minister Vijay Goel said on Monday.

Vijay Goel while speaking on the issue of India playing against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy 2017 said that multilateral tournaments like the Champions Trophy was beyond government's control.

India and Pakistan, however, will play each other in the ICCChampions Trophy in United Kingdom next month. "India has played global bilateral matches at neutral venues".

It has been learnt that BCCI joint secretary Amitabh Chaudhary will explain to the PCB officials the severity of the matter and that the series can't be held without government permission.

The meeting between the Indian and Pakistani cricket administrators will take place in Dubai, according to India Today.

The PCB has sent a notice of intent to the BCCI claimingcompensation of around United States dollars 69.4 million for India nothonouring the MOU signed between the two boards in 2014 toplay six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023.

In what can hardly be termed as great news just days from a major cricket tournament, the Champions Trophy, The Telegraph learns that "many regulars" of Team India are not exactly comfortable with head coach Anil Kumble. Bilateral series with Pakistan will be hard because terror and cricket can't go hand in hand. "But he won't be the only one applying because we expect other former players to also thrown their hats in the ring", a top BCCI official said.

India's government ruled out any bilateral series against Pakistan, with the sports minister saying the national side's cricket board should get approval before games against their rivals goes ahead. "But everything depends on whether the government gives the clearance", Chaudhary told a news channel.

PCB now wants India to play short ODI series with Pakistan in return to the tour made by Pakistan team to India in the winter of 2012/13.

Last year, the PCB offered to host the Indian team for a bilateral clash in the United Arab Emirates.
