Sehwag raises voice for the resumption of Indo-Pak series

Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag has raised his voice for the continuation of Indo-Pak bilateral series.

While talking to media in Dubai, the right-handed opening batsman said that fans in both the countries eagerly wait for Indo-Pak series.

India’s hurricane opening batsman also admitted that it is not possible without the government’s approval,

“As a cricketer, I want both nations to play more regularly but unless the government agrees, there is no chance of such a series,” he said.

“I hope our government will take steps to resume cricketing ties with our neighbours,”

The 39-year-old cricketer also said that Pakistan has always been his favourite opponent. He recalled his remarkable Test innings which he played against Pakistan and scored a triple century in Multan and double century in Lahore.

“Pakistan team has always been my favourite opposition as I loved playing against them,” he said. “Two of my best innings came against Pakistan — 309-run knock in Multan and 254-run innings in Lahore.”

The last match between the arch-rivals was being played in the Asia Cup at UAE where India won by 9 wickets.
