Wasim said Pakistan cricket suffered badly in the wake of no international cricket for six years.
“When I was young I got motivated by watching Allan Border, Malcolm Marshall, Imran Khan and Javed Miandad on these grounds. I used to take the whole round when they used to practice so you get more motivation when you watch them in front of your own eyes.
“That was not available to fans and players so they suffered badly.”
Wasim hoped India revive cricketing ties with Pakistan. “India versus Pakistan should happen, wherever it happens because the beauty of Indo-Pak cricket is unmatchable, no series can match that.
“People are starved of Indo-Pak cricket so they are desperately waiting for that.”
Pakistan is due to host India in the United Arab Emirates in December this year pending New Delhi’s clearance.
