Former Indian cricketer Chetan Chauhan said on Wednesday that bilateral series between India and Pakistan should not take place in light of the current relations between the two countries.

His remarks came on the backdrop of Yuvraj Singh’s comments who said that India and Pakistan should look to play a series to bring back viewers towards the sport.

“Right now, bilateral series between India and Pakistan should not take place as relations between both countries is not nice. Playing in Pakistan is not safe. Terrorists are not concerned with cricket. As long as terrorists are there in Pakistan, cricket cannot be played between India and Pakistan,” Chauhan said.

The former cricketer also shared his views about India’s recent ODI series loss against New Zealand.

The Kiwis white-washed the Men in Blue in the three-match ODI series and Chauhan said that Ajinkya Rahane should have been included in the ODI setup to lend experience.

He also said that he expects India to come out triumphant in the Test series.

“I wanted Rahane to be in the ODI setup when Dhawan and Rohit got injured, someone who could have given stability to the side should have been brought into the side,” Chauhan said.

“Bumrah is looking a little tired. I expect the side to give a good performance in the Test series against New Zealand. Experienced campaigners like Rahane will be back in the Test setup, but Rohit and Dhawan will be missed,” he added.

Chauhan also gave wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant a piece of advice to perform consistently if he wants to cement his place in the side.

“Rishabh Pant has been given a lot of opportunities. He needs to perform consistently. He is getting chances and he should look to grab his opportunity,” the former cricketer said.
