ICC President David Morgan wants a resumption of India-Pakistan bilateral cricketing ties because he feels the on-field rivalry between the two countries is as big as the Ashes.
Morgan said he wants to help revive cricket ties between the two countries which were suspended in the aftermath of the Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008.
"One of the things I am working on is trying to persuade the BCCI that they should play more bilateral matches against Pakistan as opposed to just in ICC events," Morgan told 'The News'.
"This is because Pakistan versus India is equivalent to the Ashes. It is very important for both countries that they renew their rivalry on the cricket field in Tests. I am very hopefully they will," he added.
Morgan said the way cricket has suffered due to the volatile security situation in Pakistan remains a matter of concern.
