Former Pakistan cricket team captain and coached the national team thrice, Javed Miandad has asked Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to boycott playing against India, taking an angry stance at their unwillingness to restore bilateral ties with Pakistan. The veteran cricketer has also accused India of exploiting Pakistan’s friendly attitude in the past.
Miandad has asked his nation to respond with bricks to stones and remain strong in their attitude with an eye on their national interest and pride. He said, “There is no need for us to play with India at any forum if they are not willing to restore bilateral ties. We should also boycott playing against them in all ICC events. Take a stance and see what will happen. We have nothing to lose.”
“If the ICC board is not able to convince India to change its stance why should they expect us to play in the ICC events with India?” demanded Miandad.
He said, “The same money, 100 crores rupees or more, can be pumped into our cricket infrastructure because no one will listen to us as India is very influential and strong at the ICC level. I see it as a waste of time and money.”
