The cricketing relations between the arch-rivals India and Pakistan have been frozen courtesy the political turmoil between the two countries. Since 2012, Pakistan and India have not faced each other in a bilateral series. Despite playing quite a few times in the ICC tournaments and Asia cup, the relations between the two countries could not improve.
Mushtaq Ahmed, former Pakistan’s spinner opened up about the cricketing terms between India and Pakistan. "Cricketing ties should resume between India and Pakistan. I feel cricket has the ability to bind the two nations and improve their relationship. Cricket brings love, it brings joy and happiness to the fans. Whenever India and Pakistan meet, the cricket is of a highly competitive standard. In fact, the India-Pakistan series is bigger than the Ashes".
The last time two countries faced each other was during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales. India won that match quite comprehensively. There have been on and off talks between the cricket boards of the two countries but no positive results have been extracted out yet.
