Shiv Sena protest: Keep politics separate from cricket, says Misbah-ul-Haq
After Shiv Sena's protest at BCCI office, Misbah has expressed his concern.
New Delhi: Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq has expressed his concern over the anti-Pakistan protest in Mumbai, saying that sports and politics should be segregated.
Shiv Sena activists protested outside the BCCI headquarters that eventually led to the cancellation of talks between BCCI president Shashank Manohar and PCB chairman Shahryar Khan regarding the proposed India-Pakistan series to be held in UAE in December.
He said it was equally disappointing when Australia didn't tour Bangladesh due to safety concerns.
The 41-year-old cricketer stressed that such issues could affect cricket, and could make it very difficult for countries to play against each other.
Earlier, the ICC president Zaheer Abbas also expressed his fear for Pakistan players' security during next year's World T20 in India following the Shiv Sena's protest.
