Karachi: Former captain Javed Miandad has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board not to send a team in next year's World T20 in India if the BCCI does not agree to the proposed bilateral series in December.
"I would advice the Pakistan Board to simply make it clear that if according to the Indian Board their government has not given them clearance to play Pakistan, then our government is also not willing to let our team go to India for the World T20 next year," Miandad said.
"We now have to deal with the Indian Board giving top priority to our self respect and pride which are far more important than taking part in World T20 in India," he added.
Miandad, who played 124 Tests, said Pakistan can survive without playing India.
