The India-pak cricket match will improve relations between the two countries: Javed Miandad. The bilateral series between India and Pakistan is not happening since 2008. During this time the two countries played the series together only
Former Pakistan cricket captain Javed Miandad has once again emphasized on organizing a bilateral series between India and Pakistan. He said that it is the responsibility of boards of both countries that there is a bilateral series between each other.
During an interview, Javed Miandad said that he has no hope with the ICC so that the cricket boards of both countries should talk to their government for the bilateral series so that the match between India and Pakistan can be done.
Miandad said that the series of India and Pakistan is much larger than the Ashes series. If we resolve our issues, then both countries can rule the world of cricket. He said that this is not the first time that the tension between India and Pakistan has increased so much. It has happened before, but in that environment, there was no impact on cricket.
Rather, it gives the governments of both countries an opportunity to come closer. Miandad said that if there is a bilateral series between India and Pakistan, it will also improve the political relations of the two countries.
He further said that if India and Pakistan teams can play against each other in ICC events like World Cup and Champions Trophy, then why can not there be a bilateral series between them? Miandad said that what is the meaning of the World Test Championship or another league supported by the ICC when India and Pakistan cannot play cricket among themselves.
He urged the ICC to keep a close watch on the events of the T20 league and fixing in it. Significantly, since the Bombay bomb blast in 2008, a bilateral series has been organized between India and Pakistan only once. However, during this time, the two teams have been playing with each other at the ICC event.
