Islamabad: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has sideline the idea of a bilateral series with India and said that it would be “terrible” due to the hostilities between the countries.
The Pak PM suspects that the frosty relations between the two countries would reflect in the stadium – something, which he recalled from his own experience, wasn’t always the case, an except from ‘Out of Exile’ documentary has revealed.
“Right now, playing cricket in this atmosphere with this sort of [Indian] government in power, I would imagine it would be a terrible atmosphere on the cricket ground,” he is quoted as saying.
“I played two series in India. One in 1979 when the two governments were trying to come close. I can’t tell you how wonderful the atmosphere was on the cricket field. Big crowds,” he recalled.
