Former fast bowling great said that Pakistan should not mind playing the proposed series in India if the government gives the green signal for the resumption of cricketing ties between these two Asian powerhouses.
India and Pakistan are expected to play at a neutral venue in Sri Lanka emerging as the front-runner to host One day Internationals and T20 matches.
“It does not matter what the venue is and Pakistan can play in India if our government gives clearance. The main thing is that Indo-Pak cricket series should be resumed,” Akram said.
The India- Pakistan brings a lot of passion among both countries and the people around the world follow contest of these two arch rivals.
“It is important for both countries to play against each other in the larger interest of the game. And there is no doubt that if a series takes place soon it will strengthen the Pakistan cricket board financially,” Akram told Geo News channel.
“PCB has informed the government of the talks in Dubai that were regarded as fruitful. The PCB has not asked for an NOC from the government, for it is the government s prerogative to decide on the issue,” the statement said.
Both India and Pakistan have not played any cricket for long 6 to 7 years. They only play in big events like ICC World Cups and T20 World Cup. If both teams start to play cricketing ties again it will be good for cricketing the world to see lots of crowds.
Both of the boards will be seeking to clearance of government to play with each other and if they agree to play it will be great for these Asian giants to play a bilateral series.
