A bilateral India-Pakistan series in Dubai will be great for the sport, says Mohammad Amir

Former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir has said that if a series between India and Pakistan is played in Dubai, it will be great for the sport. Amir further added that the governments and cricket boards of both countries need to meet and discuss their issues to make the series possible.

India and Pakistan last played a bilateral series in 2012-13, with the T20I series ending in a 1-1 draw, while Pakistan won the ODI series 2-1. Since then, both teams have only met in ICC tournaments and the Asia Cups. India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral series since 2013 due to the political tensions between the two countries.

India’s last tour to Pakistan goes back to the 2008 Asia Cup, where they had lost to Sri Lanka in the final.

Meanwhile, former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir stated that the bilateral series between India and Pakistan can only be played if the governments and cricket boards of both countries have proper communication and are looking for a solution.

“Until the governments of the two countries do not sit down to discuss their problems, until then the third parties can do nothing. It also depends on both the nations’ cricket boards and what their thought process is. If all parties agree and if there is a bilateral series between India and Pakistan in Dubai, it will be great for the sport, “said Amir, who represents the Bangla Tigers in the ongoing T10 League in the UAE, while speaking to a virtual media meeting UAE on Thursday.

The 29-year-old further added that the inclusion of cricket in the Olympics is an exciting prospect.

“Look, cricket is becoming a worldwide game now. After football, cricket is the most watched game, especially in Asia. It will be very exciting if this happens,” said Amir.
