Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) managing director Wasim Khan has said that he is not confident about the resumption of India-Pakistan bilateral cricket any time soon but has suggested a change in strategy to get the two arch-rivals playing.
Khan said that the nation cricket boad needs to make the circumstances where India ask Pakistan to play, adding that they need to move forward as they could not wait forever to play India. Wasim told to ESPN, It''s a massive challenge and I don''t think we''re going to see any solutions anytime soon. I think elections are coming up in India, so nothing is going to happen in the near future. But, we are trying and (PCB chairman) Ehsan Mani is trying hard to get them to the table and get things moving.”
PCB managing director further said , "We keep on asking them to play us but let''s create a situation where they ask us to play. I think we need to do that. Its sad that we are not playing against them but life continues. We need to move forward and carry on. We can't wait forever to play India. Our focus is to develop Pakistan cricket and get our team and players a lot of success at the international level.”
The PCB had filed a complaint against (BCCI) for not playing the bilateral series between 2015 and 2023 despite signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). However, The International Cricket Council (ICC) dismissed the case.
