ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan and India will revive cricketing ties next year after agreeing to play six series from 2015 until 2023.

Pakistan toured India in late 2012 for a short limited-overs series, but they have not played in a full bilateral series since the Mumbai terrorist attacks in 2008. India last toured Pakistan in 2006.

The Pakistan Cricket Board says it will host India in December 2015. The United Arab Emirates, Pakistan’s “home” since 2009, will likely host the series.

Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi says he was happy to sign the memorandum of understanding with the Board of Control for Cricket in India. BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel termed their contests as “one of the most anticipated sporting events in the world.”
