Islamabad, March 21 (IANS) Legend Imran Khan has said an India-Pakistan bilateral cricket series can help strengthen ties between the two countries.
The World Cup winning captain said that a bilateral cricket series between the two neighbouring countries was very important as it will benefit cricket boards of both.
“A cricket series between the two countries will be a great affair. This will benefit cricket boards of both,” Imran was quoted as saying by BBC on Sunday.
The 63-year-old, however, said that as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was already financially stable, a series would be more beneficial for Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“The PCB may spend money earned through this way to improve its domestic cricket,” he said.
Expressing disappointment at the national team’s loss against India in World T20 clash, he said Pakistan team did not do justice with their talent.
“If they had suffered defeat while fighting there would have been no disappointment, but it is regrettable they lost in a one sided affair,” Imran concluded.
