Shah rules out resumption of Indo-Pak bilateral cricket ties

Mumbai: Ruling out resumption of bilateral cricket ties between India and Pakistan anytime soon, BJP president Amit Shah Saturday said the two countries would continue to play against each other in international tournaments.
“India and Pakistan will continue to play at international tournaments but neither India plays in Pakistan nor Pakistan plays in India,” Shah, who heads the Gujarat Cricket Association, said, a day ahead of the clash between the arch rivals in the Champions Trophy final in England.
Shah, who is on a three-day visit to Mumbai to strengthen the party organisation in the state, and is scheduled to meet Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, said BJP would consult its allies before finalising the NDA’s presidential candidate.
“We will consult all our allies and then reach a decision on the presidential poll nominee,” Shah told a press conference. PTI
