Islamabad, December 08:

Former Pakistan batsman Sadiq Mohammad has said they should play against rivals India more frequently as cricket fans from both the countries crave for these exciting encounters.Mohammad said he is eager to see this relationship between the neighbouring countries established on a more permanent basis even suggesting that both teams should consider neutral territory such as England to continue their battles.

“We should put political considerations to one side and play each other. If it means playing in a neutral venue then England would be a great place for that due to the interest amongst people of Indo Pak origin and I believe it will be very successful series,” Pakpassion.net quoted Mohammad, as saying.For former players like Mohammad, the prospect of an India Pakistan series is a great one to savour.

“The India Pakistan rivalry is great – maybe because we don’t play often enough so players and fans are always looking forward to it. Then again, it’s a neighbouring country with whom we have some history due to events of partition and after that as well,” Mohammad said.

“To me the most important part of this rivalry is the quality of cricket and the players that participate in these games. From the old days of Gavaskar, Vishwanath, Bedi, Kapil Dev to the new breed of Tendulkar, Sehwag and Harbhajan – there are always special players and performances in these matches. It’s a local derby and great for players and spectators alike,” he added.

Pakistan is scheduled to play 2 T20I games followed by 3 ODIs with the first T20I commencing in Bangalore on December 25th and the final game of the series being played on January 6th. (ANI)
