Ehsan Mani, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has made it cleared that although India vs Pakistan bilateral series matches occupy the global importance, they will be no more on the agenda.
Mani said that PCB does not have any issues with BCCI but, the two countries do not face each other despite the ACC and ICC’s events amidst the Indian government policies.
India vs Pakistan bilateral series no more on agenda: Ehsan Mani
“PCB has no issues with BCCI. I do not have a fear that some countries will put their interests ahead of what is good for the game as a whole. We all owe a duty of care to the global game and the well-being of world cricket and not put our short term interests before it,” he said.
“Pakistan-India matches are the most-watched cricket matches in the world. However, apart from ICC and ACC events, we do not play against each other due to the policy of the Indian government,” he said.
“It is good for the health of global cricket that we play against each other, however, in our planning we do not take into account any bilateral series against India.”
The political tensions among both the nations have killed the joy of cricket for both cricket-loving nations. Fans always crave for Indo-Pak series. It has been years since the arch-rivals faced each other in bilateral series. They came face to face only in ICC events since 2012-13. The hatred shall stay limited to political aspects which have been their part since the birth of both countries. Involving the hate in the game has destroyed the spirit of the game and the fans see each other as enemies
