KARACHI: Former Pakistani cricketer Inzamam ul Haq said, playing against traditional rival India on a regular basis can help to learn Pakistani cricket team how to cope up with situation in under pressure mode.
Inzamam was all in favour of the series between India and Pakistan which might take place in December.

The legendary batsman advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to arrange more tours for the national team to countries like Australia, England, South Africa and India.

The former right hand batsman also spoke about Younus Khan and praised him for his commitment to game, which according to Inzamam, never wavers despite all the politics and controversies which tend to surround the game.
The former Test batsman urged the expert player to not retire just yet, and to continue to carry on playing and become the first Pakistani player to complete 10,000 Test runs.
He Advised, “We have fallen behind in international cricket in the sense we are not getting tours to the big countries but the PCB now needs to organise more tours to Australia, South Africa and other top cricket nations.”
