Shoaib Malik: PCB

Pakistan’s experienced all-rounder Shoaib Malik feels that the series between India and Pakistan should start as soon as possible because world cricket desperately needs it. Malik also says that series is required as the Ashesh between Australia and England is needed.


Both Asian countries have not played any bilateral series since 2012 due to political issues. Both teams are playing in the ICC tournament or Asia Cup only.

 “I think the world badly needs this rivalry to resume, in the same way, that world cricket needs the Ashes,” Shoaib Malik told

He said, “Could England and Australia imagine Test cricket without an Ashes series? Both series are played with the same kind of passion and have such a great history. so it is a shame that we don’t play right now.”

“Also, I have Pakistani friends who love to talk about Indian cricketers with respect and admiration. Similarly, I and my Pakistan team-mates are given such love and support when we play in India. So it is a rivalry that I would like to see return as soon as it is possible.”

The political issue over India and Pakistan is not stopping. And that’s the reason World Cricket fans are missing India vs Pakistan. But whenever both teams play in Asia Cup or ICC tournaments it remains the high voltage cricket match.


Both teams are scheduled to meet once again in Asia Cup 2012. Both the team last met in ICC World Cup 2019 in England where India defeated Pakistan.
