Former Indian bowler Kirti Azad has lashed out against the likely resumption of the India – Pakistan cricket ties. Azad, a member of the governing BJP, said that with terror attacks taking place in India mainly due to Pakistan, it wasn’t right to play cricket against them. Apart from his views over the much-loved rivalry, Azad also praised Shashank Manohar for his transparent approach.

“The members of boards are also Indian and they realise that terror and talks don’t go together until there is peace on the border. I think there is no chance of bilateral series with Pakistan at no neutral venue,” Azad said. “Our soldier or your soldiers, in times of war when you are protecting your border it does happen. There are so many ceasefire violations on the international border, a line of control is something that has to be taken very seriously,” he added.

Azad was also critical of Maharashtra based political outfit for protesting against the PCB officials in a violent manner.  “Protesting is not a problem. But you can’t use strong arm tactics. You can’t man handle people. That’s not the way to do it. That’s not the democracy. That’s trying to be hooliganism.”

Lauding Manohar for his decisions during the recent meeting of the BCCI, Azad said, “I have great faith in Shashank Manohar. He is an upright and straight forward man and I really appreciate and laud him for his fantastic work since he became BCCI president.”
