India on Monday invited Pakistan for a short limited overs series in December-January, the first bilateral encounter between the neighbours in five years.

“I welcome India’s decision to revive cricket with Pakistan,” Khan told reporters. “Anything which can bring both the countries to negotiations and normalcy is very good and we must appreciate that.

“The prospect of India and Pakistan playing against each other is a good news for international cricket because these matches are followed by millions across the world,” added Khan.
