Karachi, Sep 07 (ANI): Former Pakistan pace bowler and current head coach Waqar Younis believes that regular bilateral cricket series with India can help ease the escalating tensions between the two sub-continental arch rivals.
Waqar said that he was optimistic about the proposed series in December despite knowing the fact that the present situation between both countries has put the series in jeopardy, the Express Tribune reported.
The former pace spearhead also said that it would be most unfortunate for cricket if the series, comprising of two Tests, five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 series, doesn’t take place.
According to the MoU signed between PCB and BCCI, both countries are scheduled to play six series in the 2015-2023 Future Tours Programme, but all were subject to clearance from New Delhi.
India have not played a full bilateral Test series with Pakistan after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. (ANI)
