Currently, there is a buzz about India and Pakistan to play bilateral series. The talks started after Pakistan got the hosting rights of the Asia Cup 2020 while BCCI’s officials remained tight-lipped on their participation. Since then, politicians from both the countries as well as the former cricketers have kept their opinion on the subject. But the latest incident which has caught the eyes is that fans from Lahore were holding placards during the PSL clash, urging Team India to play bilateral series in Pakistan.

On Saturday, a group of Pakistan cricket fans in Lahore held up a banner, requesting the Indian team to come and play cricket in Pakistan. During a PSL match between Islamabad United and Multan Sultans, the spectators were posing with the banner written: “We Want India Here”.

Earlier, Pakistan’s former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has pointed on the relations between the two countries. He said that its high time for them to start playing the bilateral series.

However, his reaction came after former cricketer Yuvraj Singh said that the two rival nations should play the bilateral series to bring back the crowd in the stadium.
