Mumbai: While comparing the rivalry between India and Pakistan to the Ashes, former India batsman VVS Laxman said India is safe to host the matches, should a bilateral series between the neighbouring countries take place.
The stylish Hyderabadi batsman pointed out that fans enjoyed the contest when Pakistan toured India in December 2012-January 2013 for three ODIs and two T20s.
"When Pakistan came for three one-dayers and two T20, the crowd really loved it. I don't think there would be any problem. It is like the Ashes and everyone looks forward to the Ashes and the England and Australia rivalry. The rivalry is traditional.
