MUZAFFARABAD– National off-spinner Saeed Ajmal on Saturday has come out to support cricket with arch-rival India.
Talking to media in Muzaffarabad, Saeed Ajmal said that tensions can be overcome if both states play their positive role. He said that strained relations between India and Pakistan can be overcome by cricket.
The bowler said that the optimistic ties with India would surely be helpful in attaining peace in the region.
It may be mentioned that Anurag, who is also a leader of the ruling BJP in India, in a recent statement last week said that there was no question of playing cricket with Pakistan.
On the other hand, batting Legend Javed Miandad slammed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Anurag Thakur’s statement saying Pakistan should not bother about playing with India as it is always India who has backstabbed Pakistan whenever it comes to playing cricket.
“BCCI is full of such type of people, who for their own benefit can get down to your feet but when their interests are fulfilled they pretend like they don’t know you,” he said.
