ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistan Test captain Javed Miandad has advised the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) 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.
The 124 Tests veteran said it was a shame that despite having good teams and exciting young talents, India and Pakistan are not competing against each other on regular basis.
“What is the purpose of this World Test Championship or any other ICC backed league if India and Pakistan don’t play against each other,” he said.
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.
