World cricket needs resumption of Pakistan-India cricket rivalry: Shoaib Malik

ISLAMABAD-Veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik said there was a need for resuming the Pakistan-India cricket ties, just like the world cricket needed the Ashes, saying both series were played with same passion and have a great history.

"I think the cricket world badly needs revival of Pakistan-India cricket ties, in the same way that world cricket needs the Ashes.

Speaking about Pakistan's chances if this year's Twenty20 World Cup takes place, Malik, who scored 2,321 runs in 110 T20s, said he believes Pakistan's chances were very good.

"In order to win these kinds of events, you have to have a very strong bowling attack and I think we have that box ticked. In addition, we also have a good batting line-up to complement that strong bowling attack."
