Dubai: Pakistan captain Misbah-ul Haq vows his hope Tuesday that there could soon be a revival of Test matches between his country and India, stalled after the terrorists’ attacks on Mumbai in 2008.
“Of course, we’d like to play against India,” Misbah said. “It’s a very important series for both players and fans.”
“It’s always good fun to play in these contests. The interest is high, I hope it happens because for all fans and players it is a good occasion.”
Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf is due to meet Narayan Srinivasan, his counterpart in India’s Board of Control for Cricket in India, in Chennai early next month to discuss the possibility of a resumption of ties sooner than later.
Both countries are slated to play in International Cricket Council (ICC) Future Tours Program but are hard pressed to find a slot because of India’s hectic schedule.
Misbah said his team would not ease off going into their final ODI against Sri Lanka.
“We want to win every game we play. The series win had its own importance but Wednesday’s game we will play like a series decider, or the first match,” said Misbah.
