Shaharyar, who has been pushing for a bilateral series with India in the last few months despite not getting positive response from his Indian counterpart, told the media he was hopeful that the Indian PM’s visit would create an environment to have the series and there could some good news soon. But soon after Shaharyar’s comments criticism flowed in for trying to revive a dead issue.
