Khan meanwhile ruled out Pakistan’s withdrawal from the World Twenty20 series to be held in India in March and April next year.

“No, I don’t see that and hope things will improve by then,” Khan told AFP earlier in the day, responding to calls from former Pakistan players to pull out of the ICC (International Cricket Council) event.

“Our stance has always been that cricket and politics should be kept separate and we maintain that stance,” said Khan. – AFP
