Mohali: India's decision to resume bilateral cricket ties with Pakistan is a "welcome step" for world cricket as it will bring the troubled nation back into the mainstream, ICC's principal advisor and Punjab Cricket Association president, I S Bindra has said.
"It's a welcome step," Bindra told PTI about Indian government's decision to resume cricket ties with the neighbouring country.
"Regularisation of ties is a great thing. I hope they fit into Future Tours Programme (FTP). It's a nice thing not only for India, but for world cricket as a whole that Pakistan will come into the mainstream of world cricket," he said. Bindra said Pakistan is a "very exciting team" and their absence from the mainstream is a "great loss to world cricket".
