“There are more chances of snowfall in Lahore than bilateral series between India and Pakistan.



“Both teams will keep on meeting in World Cups and ICC tournaments, but a series between them seem unlikely right now,” Gavaskar said. 

Former India captain and Gavaskar’s former teammate Kapil Dev had also spoken on the issue a few days back. Kapil, who captained India to teh 1983 World Cup win, had said that a bilateral series, specially in these circumstances would endanger the lives of many people and it is not a feasible idea.

The entire sporting world, including cricket, has come to a complete standstill with no sports taking place anywhere in the world due to the coronavirus pandemic.
