Former Pakistan cricketer and fast bowling great Wasim hits back at Sourav Ganguly’s controversial statement about India–Pakistan series.

Former Indian captain an batting great Sourav Ganguly backed BCCI’s stance of not resuming bilateral cricketing ties with Pakistan until the cross-border terrorism stops.

“I think BCCI is correct in saying that terror will have to completely go before play could happen. Because as human beings we also want terror to completely go,” Ganguly told journalists while attanding an event in New Delhi following the Gurudaspur terrorist attack.

But Akram have different thought, the said the cricket should continue and politics should be kept away fom the sports.

“I believe that sports and politics should be kept apart and no matter what happens on the political fronts between India and Pakistan, cricket should be played,” Akram said.

The Pakistan media carried out a report in this regard, Akram recollect the memory of 1999’s Pakistan’s tour of India when both country were at their each other throat.

“It was a tour where there was a lot of security around us and we mostly stayed inside the hotels. But we still continued playing cricket and it was a successful tour. I believe that bilateral Indo-Pak cricket ties must not stop,” Akram stated.

PCB had series of talks with BCCI for the bilateral series in UAE, but it was not finalized as BCCI said many things should be addressed before the series become a reality. But, PCB’s hope for possible series dashed after terrorist attack at Gurudaspur police station.

Immediately , after the terrorist attack BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur  warned PCB about the terrorist attack in a press conference in Mumbai that finally ditched the idea of possibel series.

The PCB, who wants to host the series in UAE, is still hopefull for the series and chairman Shahryar Khan feels the decision shall be taken in a couple of months.

“The series is still on and we are even willing to play the series in the UAE. I think a clear picture and decision will come in two months time regarding whether the series will be held in December,” Khan said.
