Summary

  • Former Pakistan Test captain Javed Miandad has advised the Cricket Boards of India and Pakistan to work together for the resumption of bilateral series between the two neighbouring countries.
  • It is high time the two boards got on one platform and tried to convince the governments to give clearance for resumption of bilateral cricket between India and Pakistan, Miandad said in an interview.
  • Miandad said he had lost all hope in the ICC in playing any role to get India and Pakistan to resume bilateral cricket, which has been suspended since 2008 except for a short limited over series held in 2012-13 in India as a goodwill gesture.
  • India and Pakistan series is much bigger than the Ashes and if we work out our issues the two countries can rule the cricket world, he added.
  • Miandad asked that if India and Pakistan can play in ICC events like the World Cup or Champions Trophy or in the Asia Cup, then why cant they play bilateral matches.
