The Chairman of the Dubai Cricket Council Abdul Rahman Falaknaz is ready to host the bilateral series between India and Pakistan. After successfully hosting PSL 2021, IPL 2021 and the ICC T20 World Cup, he is confident of bringing the two arch-rivals together for a series.

“The best thing would be to get India-Pakistan matches here. When Sharjah used to host India and Pakistan all those years ago, it was like a war. But it was a good war, it was a sporting war and it was fantastic,” Falaknaz was quoted as saying by the Khaleej Times

“I remember (Bollywood actor) Raj Kapoor came once with his family. During the awards night, he took the mic and said, ‘How wonderful it is to have these India-Pakistan battles in Sharjah. Cricket brings people together, cricket has brought us together, and let us remain this way,'” he added.

“So this is what we would like to do. If we can convince India to come and play here against Pakistan once a year or twice a year, it would be fantastic,” concluded the Dubai Cricket Council chairman.
