Former Pakistan Skipper Waqar Younis feels that India and Pakistan should resume their bilateral fixtures and it would be biggest hit of the cricketing world if it happens.
According to a report by India Today, the legendary fast bowler, speaking on a chat show QT20 for GloFans, added that fans of both the countries will be in favor of India Pakistan series.
“If you go and ask people of both the countries on whether Pakistan and India should play each other, everyone, around 95% of them will agree, that cricket between these two should be played,” India Today quoted Waqar Younis as saying on the show.
Series will be the biggest hit
Talking further on the show, former swing wizard predicated the success of the bilateral battle between the two countries and said it will be the biggest hit of the world irrespective of the name the series would be given.
“Be it ‘Imran-Kapil Series’ or ‘Independence Series’ or whatever name we give to it, I think that it would be the biggest hit of the world. I think Pakistan India should play, and should play on a regular basis to avoid depriving cricket lovers of India and Pakistan,” legendary fast bowler was quoted by India Today as saying on the show.
Either in Pakistan or in India
The legendary bowler during the show hoped that India and Pakistan will play in their own venues rather than any neutral venue.
Notably, in recent times India and Pakistan have met in multilateral ICC events only. The last bilateral played between the countries in 2012/13 season.
“I do see Pakistan and India playing bilateral series. I am not sure where though, but I hope it will be either in Pakistan or in India. You don’t want to see them playing in some other country because that’s where you want to see them. You want to see them playing in their own countries,” concluded Waqar Younis.
