Qadir wants politics aside from cricket

Former leggie-star Abdul Qadir feels politics should be kept aside from cricket saying the strained political relationships should not harm the Indo-Pak series to be played in December this year at UAE.

Talking to media, Qadir said that currently our government’s role in improving the Pakistan-India relations is remarkable. “It is always and always India that has at all times started the war of words against Pakistan,” he said. Qadir said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and company should stop giving negative statements against Pakistan and instead should see how to improve the relations.

“Modi has come into power for the first time therefore he should set such examples for India so that people can remember him even after his departure,” he said adding the first thing Modi should focus on is how to improve the relations with Pakistan. Qadir pointed that it was Modi who had earlier said that he wanted to improve Indo-Pak relations via ‘cricket diplomacy’. “It was Modi’s words that a decision is taken to start a cricket series between both the countries to improve relations,” Qadir said adding where the Man of words is now.

Qadir said that an Indo-Pak series is must for the people of the sub-continent saying it is even bigger than the Ashes. “If India can’t play a series against Pakistan in Pakistan than UAE or any other neutral venue is a good choice,” he said adding but the series in the UAE this year should happen as per plan. Speaking about the upcoming Pak-Sri Lanka series, Qadir said that Pakistan should not take the Sri Lanka team lightly as the Zimbabwean team.

“Sri Lanka is a very tough team and Pakistan should go there fully prepared in all departments,” he said. He said that the green-shirts should not repeat the mistakes that they did in the series against Bangladesh. “I was really disappointed to see the high scores that Zimbabwe scored against Pakistani fast-bowlers,” he said adding Saeed Ajmal should have given a chance in the series to prove his metal with the changed bowling action.

Qadir said that some people in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) go on liking and disliking in picking the squad rather than choosing on merit. “This system should be demolished and merit should be the priority,” he said.
