The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday decided to invite Pakistan's domestic Twenty20 champions for the Champions League tournament to be hosted by India in October.

The BCCI working committee's decision to invite a Pakistani domestic team means domestic Twenty20 champions Sialkot Stallions, led by Shoaib Malik, would be seen in action in October. 

Bilateral cricket ties between India and Pakistan have been put on hold after the terrorist attack in Mumbai in 2008 by Pakistani nationals.


“The Working Committee has decided to invite a team from Pakistan to play in Champions League Twenty20 to be held in October,” BCCI president N. Srinivasan told reporters after the working committee meeting.
