He said that the PCB will not run after the BCCI to hold a bilateral series following poor political relations that have damaged sportsman spirit among the arch-rivals. It is to be noted that the two countries have not met in a bilateral series since 2012.
“We will not run behind India to play series with us. Immediate series talks with India is impossible as due to politics, the sporting event is damaged. Our main focus is to address problems at the domestic, club and school level,” he added.
