Former Mumbai Indians captain and the current Team India skipper Rohit Sharma was joined by Australian keeper-batter Adam Gilchrist, and former England cricketer Michael Vaughan in one of the episodes of Club Prairie Fire podcast when he was asked about the India versus Pakistan bilateral series. Reckoned as one of the fiercest rivalries in international cricket, Rohit opened up on resuming the bilateral series.

It is to be noted that India and Pakistan haven’t played each other in a bilateral series for a decade now due to the political tensions between the two neighbouring nations. Speaking during the podcast episode, former England captain Michael Vaughan asked the 36-year-old, “Don’t you think India playing Pakistan regularly will be fantastic for Test?”

The Indian skipper did not shy from accepting that they will be one of the good contests as he said, “I totally believe that they are a good team, superb bowling line-up, good contest, if we play overseas. The last Test was played way back in 2007-08.”  “Yeah, I would love to (play against Pakistan), it would be a great contest between two sides. We play them in ICC trophies, pure cricket I am looking at, great contest, so why not?” he further concluded.
