He said, “They don’t want to play with us so be it. Our cricket will not die if we don’t play with India. We should move on and forget about them.”
“They haven’t played against us since the last 10 years, so what? Has our cricket gone down? No we have done well. The Champions Trophy win is an example. Cricket cannot die in Pakistan. We have also survived without international cricket at home since 2009,” he said.
“Today the PCB is financially stable but there is a need for proper accountability of where the money that comes from the ICC is spent. There is a need to reduce the administrative expenses of the board and get rid this army of advisors, consultants and employees. The PCB can easily function without paying such heavy salaries to an over-sized staff,” he said.
For last several years, Pakistan have been constantly urging BCCI to arrange bilateral series against Pakistan on the basis of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in 2014.
Although the Board of Control for Cricket in India seemed not so unwilling to deal with Pakistan in bilateral issues, Indian government sternly rejected any possibility therefore on account of political dispute between two neighbors.
