Former India captain Sourav Ganguly who is likely to take the new role as the BCCI president has said that the governments should decide about the resumption of bilateral series between India and Pakistan. The last time India and Pakistan played a bilateral tie was in 2012 where India hosted their neighbours. Ganguly led India during their tour to Pakistan in 2005.
During a media briefing on Thursday in Kolkata, Ganguly was asked about the resumption of India-Pakistan bilateral ties and the former cricketer replied, “You have to ask that question to Modi ji and the Pakistan Prime Minister.”
“Of course we have (to take permission), because international exposure (tours) is all through governments. So we don’t have an answer to that question,” he added.
