The Indian cricket board (BCCI) may host the two-match T20 series againstPakistan first before the three-match ODI series against the arch-rivals.
According to sources, a working committee member suggested this to the tour programme and fixture committee of the board on a day when the BCCI decided to resume cricket ties with Pakistan.
Pakistan as of now are scheduled to tour India between December 26 to January 10 (2013) in between England series, which has a 19-day window.
India will play four Test matches against England first and then will play two T20 matches against the same opposition.
So, the working committee member has cited the reason that if the T20 matches are held first against Pakistan, then there will be continuity.
Following the three-match ODI series against Pakistan, India will host England in five-match home series as well. A source said that the board hasn't taken a final decision on it. But the board has taken a note of member's suggestion!
