Pakistan’s Twenty20 skipper Shahid Afridi, on Wednesday, fully supported any recommencement of cricket ties with India, saying wherever and whenever a series is played the show must go on, irrespective of politics.
Asked about the Pakistan players’ reaction to a possible series between the arch-rivals in Sri Lanka next month, Afridi replied: “I think cricket should go on between Pakistan and India because it creates good contacts.
“Wherever or whenever, cricket should go on.”
Top Pakistan and Indian cricket officials met in Dubai on Sunday, agreeing to play a short limited over series after getting permission from their respective governments.
India had stalled bilateral cricket with their neighbours in the aftermath of 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, which were blamed on militants based in Pakistan.
