The much-anticipated talks between BCCI President Shashank Manohar and his Pakistan counterpart Shaharyar Khan will not take place on Monday after Shiv Sena activists stormed the Indian cricket Board headquarters protesting against bilateral series between the two countries.



According to sources, the meeting has been cancelled for now in view of the protest at the BCCI headquarters during which hundreds of Shiv Sainiks stormed the Board office and gheraoed Manohar in his office.


"The talks are not happening as of now due to the current situation but you cannot say that it won't happen in future," a top BCCI source told PTI.


Manohar had invited Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan for talks on the much-anticipated series scheduled in December.


Khan and PCB's executive committee head Najam Sethi are in the city for the meeting after discussing the planned series with BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur earlier on the sidelines of the ICC meeting in Dubai.


Thakur had assured him a final decision could be taken later this month and conveyed Manohar's invitation to visit India.
