ISLAMABAD, Dec 11 (APP): The Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary Anurag Thakur feels Dharamsala will provide the ideal atmosphere  for the high-octane India-Pakistan match of the ICC World Twenty20 championship.

“Looking at the heat generated while the discussion was on whether the series will be held between India and Pakistan, it needed a cooler weather and Dharamsala gives the right atmosphere,” said Thakur.

There should be some cold place where such a ‘hot’ match will take place,” quipped the BCCI secretary about the much-anticipated clash, which is slated on March 19.

While India won the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2007, Pakistan followed suit to win it next two years later, Cricket Country reported.

The two arch-foes have not clashed with each other in a bilateral series since 2012-13 when Pakistan visited India to play a few ODI and T20 Internationals.

The two nations, however, met on the cricket field last year in the ICC World Cup league game at Adelaide, Australia.

Chances of a renewal of the much-awaited bilateral series between the two neighbors this month in a neutral venue is still hanging in the balance.
