S Sreesanth, the former Indian fast bowler, reveals his thoughts regards India and Pakistan bilateral saying that the relations among both Nations are not stable enough to go with the series.
Earlier, the former Pakistani fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, has presented an idea of a bilateral series between India and Pakistan to raise Coronavirus funds. His idea, however, was badly criticized. Sreesanth is one of the cricketing figures to neglect Shoaib’s idea of the Indo-Pak series.
“We are not in good terms with Pakistan so, India first and health first. Personally, I am not in favor of playing any match against Pakistan unless the relations between the two countries improve,” S Sreesanth was quoted as saying on Instagram live.
Earlier, the former Indian skipper, Kapil Dev, criticized Shoaib badly and said India has enough money and they don’t need to organize a series against Pakistan to make more.
“He is entitled to his opinion but we don’t need to raise the money. We have enough. For us, what is important right now is how our authorities work together to deal with this crisis. I am still seeing,” said Kapil.
India and Pakistan have always been two rival nations. Since their independence in 1947, they have raised fuming political tensions that have risen to a surplus extent. The sense of hatred has indulged itself in the spirit of cricket as both of them don’t want to face each other in the bilateral series amid conflicts.
Last time when India and Pakistan faced each other in a bilateral series was back in 2012-13 when Pakistan trashed India. Since then, the arch-rivals against each other only have been a part of mega ICC events.
