‘Pakistan has always been superior to India’


Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad has told the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to stop running after their India counterparts in an effort to resume bilateral series between the countries.

India had initially agreed to a series against their Asian rivals in the UAE in December but those games have been put on hold as political tensions between the countries has risen lately.

Some BCCI members have come out publicly and said they would not play against Pakistan until poilitical calm has been restored.

Miandad said: "I don't think these inflammatory statements are a true reflection of the feelings of the Indian masses towards Pakistan and they are not helping us move forward in improving ties.

"Pakistan has always been superior to India in cricket and we have more raw cricketing talent compared to them. Their cricket is surviving on money and commercialism.

"It is good if both countries can resume bilateral ties but not at the cost of our self-respect and pride."
