Pakistan will survive without playing India: Shahryar Khan
New Delhi: PCB chief Shahryar Khan yesterday saidnot playing India is a 'setback' but Pakistan will continue to survive in case the BCCI backs out of the bilateral cricket series slated to be held in the UAE in December.
The PCB and BCCI has signed an MoU to play six series between 2015 and 2023.
However PCB is yet to get the Indian board's response on its letter last week, asking them to honour the 'binding agreement'. Asked whether he sees the arch-rivals resuming on field ties in December, Shahryar told PTI : "Well, it depends on your government. Your board has signed an agreement with us that we will play in December.
"They said we will have to get permission from the government. We have written to the BCCI, asking them honour the agreement. We are not running after them. We are just saying you have signed something so please honour your signature."
