New Delhi: Ehsan Mani, former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, has given a big statement regarding the cricket relationship between India and Pakistan. He said that if cricket is to be held in both the countries, then why should only Pakistan run after India, after all India can also come to Pakistan.

Ehsan Mani said that “I have said many times before that if they wants to play, they have to come forward. I have never refused an India-Pakistan match, but we also have some respect. Why did we run after India? If they are ready, we will be ready too.”

However, while talking to Cricket Pakistan in a press conference, Ehsan Mani remained attacking the ruling BJP at the center of India. He said that the BCCI chief may be Sourav Ganguly but the secretary is Jay Shah, the son of the Union Home Minister. He told the real control of BCCI is with the BJP government.

It is precise that last bilateral series between India and Pakistan was in the year 2012. Then the Pakistan team toured India. Since then, the political relations between the two countries have been fluctuating. Although both the teams have participated many times in ICC events and have come up against each other.
