Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani has made it clear that Pakistan won’t beg India to play any bilateral series.
Mani’s comments come ahead of Pakistan and India’s highly-anticipated World Cup clash in Manchester on Sunday.
Frosty political relations have led to Pakistan and India only facing each other at major International Cricket Council (ICC) events like the World Cup.
The last time the two arch-rivals played a bilateral series was when Pakistan toured India in December 2012 to January 2013 for a limited overs series that consisted of two Twenty20 Internationals and three ODIs.
“We will not beg India or any other country to play cricket with us; we want [a] resumption of bilateral cricket ties with India in a decent and dignified manner,” Mani was quoted as saying by Dawn.
