Misbah-ul-haq is hoping ties between Pakistan and India can improve if a series is held

Current Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-haq, has announced his desire to play a bilateral series against India, after hosting Bangladesh.

Ul-haq, also expressed his pride for Pakistan being able to host an international tour after three years.

The Nation, quoted Misbah-ul-haq as saying: “One of the most difficult things for me or the rest of the Pakistan team players has been to play away from home all the time in the last three years. It was disappointing not to get a chance to play in front of our people and on our own grounds.”

His comments come after the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) agreed to play an ODI and Twenty20 International in Lahore on 29 and 30 April.

Pakistan, have not been able to host any international matches since the Sri Lanka team were attacked by gunmen in Lahore in March 2009.

Ul-haq, also stated that he was confident in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and its chairman, Zaka Ashraf, to restore international cricket in the country.

“We need to have regular bilateral cricket series because nowadays when we play after a long gap there is lot of tension associated with our matches and there is extra pressure on the players. If we play regularly against each other I think it will be better for people of both countries,” Misbah said.
