Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi feels that bilateral cricket series between India and Pakistan won’t be possible until Narendra Modi’s government is in power.
“The government of Pakistan is always ready but with the present regime in India, there are no such chances of resuming cricket relations, of Pakistan-India series.With Modi in power, I don’t see it’s going to happen,” Shahid Afridi was quoted as saying by Arab News.
Shahid Afridi also believes that the Pakistani cricketers are missing a big opportunity by not playing the Indian Premier League (IPL) as the cash-rich T20 league is a very big brand in the world of cricket.
“I know that IPL is a very big brand in the world of cricket and it is an excellent opportunity for, whether it’s Babar Azam or many other Pakistani players to go there [to India] and play under pressure and share dressing rooms.So in my opinion Pakistani players are missing a big opportunity,” Afridi added.
The opening week has certainly lived up to the hype, offering a Super Over, a record hundred, a six-fest, and some setbacks for big names.
