Former Pakistan captain Aamer Sohail has said that the clash between India National Cricket Team and Pakistan National Cricket Team always brings anticipation all around the world and the fans of the sport are deprived of that.

Currently, India and Pakistan only lock horns in the ICC tournaments due to the political conflicts between the countries and the last bilateral series between the teams was played back in 2012.

The last time India and Pakistan met in the ICC tournament was in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, where Pakistan won for the very first time against India in a World Cup encounter.

Speaking to Sportstar, Sohail said that the International Cricket Council (ICC) keeps on emphasising that politics should not be mixed with cricket and he agrees with that. He stated:

“The ICC keeps on emphasising that politics should not be involved as far as cricket is concerned and I agree with that. The contest between India and Pakistan always brings that anticipation all around the world. Cricket fans are deprived of that.”

Rohit Sharma’s Batting Doesn’t Seem To Get Affected By Captaincy – Aamer Sohail

Sohail opined that the senior opener Rohit Sharma is a good choice as a skipper and his batting doesn’t get affected by captaincy. He further added that the selection for the Test team shouldn’t be based on IPL performances.

“Rohit Sharma is a good choice as a captain. His batting doesn’t seem to get affected by captaincy. Of course, his experience as the Mumbai Indians skipper at the IPL (Indian Premier League) would help.

“IPL helps the new players get prepared and make them comfortable with the camera. But I believe the IPL performances should not be the criterion for selection to the Test team; it should be based only on First-Class cricket.”
