Dalmiya's death hits Pakistan's cricket ties with India: Daily

Tue, Sep 22, 2015, 01:53 PM
Islamabad, Sep 22: Pakistan's cricketing ties with India have hit "another obstacle" due to the death of Indian cricket board chief Jagmohan Dalmiya, said a leading Pakistani daily which described him as a visionary.

Board of Control for Cricket in India chief Jagmohan Dalmiya died on Sunday in India's Kolkata city.

An editorial "Cricket with India" in the Dawn on Tuesday said that the country's cricketing ties with India have hit another obstacle with the death of Dalmiya.

"A visionary, Dalmiya, along with Pakistan’s Arif Abbasi, was the brain behind bringing the World Cup to the subcontinent in 1987. His induction at the helm of the BCCI earlier this year in place of the controversial N. Srinivasan was seen as a positive development by Pakistan that has been anxiously waiting for its arch-rivals to honour their long-standing commitment of playing a series either in Pakistan, or at a neutral venue," said the daily.

"The BCCI, though expressing its willingness to send the Indian cricket team to the UAE for a full series in December this year, has been clearly undermined by the strong anti-Pakistan stance of the Narendra Modi government. Hence the uncertainty over the series," it added.
