Former Indian captain Kapil Dev has endorsed the idea of having a India-Pakistan match to raise funds for the millions of people stranded and displaced due to the floods in Pakistan.

"I would like to see an Indo-Pak match for the purpose of raising funds for the flood victims," Kapil told the "News One" television channel from New Delhi.

Kapil expressed his deep grief and sorrow over the loss of lives and property in the devastating floods in many parts of Pakistan.

"It's a huge calamity and to help the affectees, Pakistan and India should ideally play either in Pakistan or India, but if it is not possible then a neutral venue is also an option for both boards," Kapil said.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has said that it is in contact with the Indian cricket Board and the International Cricket Council to arrange the funds raising match for flood victims,

Sources in the PCB said that until now the Indian board has not given a final response but the PCB was hopeful of a positive response soon.
