Former Pakistan captain and batting legend Javed Miandad has said he wants to see regular Pakistan and India bilateral series.
Miandad questioned the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) that if the teams can play each other in the World Cup, Champions Trophy, World T20 and Asia Cup, then they can play each other in a bilateral series.
“We (Pakistan and India) can rule the world of cricket if we work and play together,” he said. Speaking about the International Cricket Council’s decision to convert 2021 Champions Trophy into a T20 event, Miandad said it was a good thing. “People are more interested in watching T20 cricket than Tests or ODIs,” he said.
“However, the ICC must keep a strict eye on match-fixing issues as shorter formats involve a bigger threat of fixing,” he added.
