KARACHI - Misbah-ul-Haq has said that if people want resumption of bilateral cricket ties between Pakistan and India then politics has to be kept out of the sport. "As a player I would like to play against India. I would want to captain our side against them. But unless politics is kept away from cricket, there can't be a resumption of bilateral ties," Misbah told reporters in Karachi. Misbah said that Pakistan had always pushed for resumption of bilateral ties but unfortunately the response from India had not been the same.
