New York: Asserting that cricketing ties can help improve relations, batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has urged the governments of India and Pakistan to resume the bilateral series which has been stalled due to political tension.

"These are issues which the two countries' governments need to decide. I think that the relations (between India and Pakistan) need to improve.
If the governments feel that this is the ideal way to move forward and the two boards also feel the same, I do not see any reason why we should not play," Tendulkar told the local media here on Monday.
"If the governments feel it is inappropriate then we have to abide by their decision," he added.
