Rohit Sharma, the captain of Team India, advocates for a regular India versus Pakistan cricket series, emphasizing that it would be a fantastic contest and beneficial for Test cricket. His statement underscores the longstanding rivalry between the two cricketing nations and acknowledges the excitement and anticipation such matches generate among fans worldwide. A regular series between India and Pakistan could not only reignite the historic cricketing rivalry but also contribute to the growth and popularity of Test cricket, fostering greater interest and engagement in the longest format of the game.

On the podcast “Club Prairie Fire,” former England captain Michael Vaughan asked Rohit: “Don’t you think India playing Pakistan regularly will be fantastic for Test cricket?”

Rohit replied: “I totally believe that! They are a good team.”

“They have got superb bowling line-up. I think it would be a good contest, especially if you play in the overseas condition. That would be awesome.”

“Last test match played between India and Pakistan was way back I think in 2006 or 2008 (2007), where Wasim Jaffar got a double hundred in Kolkata,” he attached.

The last time India and Pakistan played a Test match was indeed in 2007, with the match taking place in Bengaluru. India emerged victorious in that three-match series, clinching it 1-0.

Vaughan asked Rohit: “Would he like to see a regular series with Pakistan?”

The Indian captain stated: “I would love to. At the end of the day, we want to be in contest.”

“I think it will be agreat contest between the two sides. We anyway play them in the ICC tournaments. So, it doesn’t even matter. I am only interested in pure cricket. I am not looking at anything else.”

“It’s just pure cricket. A battle between bat and ball. It will be a great contest so why not.”
