Hope to play India in bilateral series soon: Misbah

Ecstatic that international cricket is finally returning to Pakistan after three years, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq is now hoping that his team would get to play against India in a bilateral series soon. Bangladesh and Pakistan Cricket Boards announced on Sunday that the former would play an ODI and a Twenty20 match in Lahore on 29 and 3oth April. This would be the first visit by an ICC Test-playing nation to Pakistan since the terrorist attack on the the Sri Lankan team in 2009.

Misbah said he was happy to hear about the series being played in Pakistan.'One of the most difficult things for me or the rest of the Pakistan team players has been to play away from home all
the time in the last three years. It was disappointing not to get a chance to play in front of our people and on our own grounds,' he said.

Misbah said he was hopeful that due to the efforts of the Board and its Chairman Zaka Ashraf more international cricket will return to the country. On cricket relations with India, Misbah said he would like to see both teams playing against each other more regularly.
