Mohammad Amir backs Dubai's offer to host Indo-Pak series

Former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir on Thursday backed chairman of the Dubai Cricket Council Abdul Rahman Falaknaz's offer to host bilateral series between India and Pakistan in the UAE. India and Pakistan have not played any bilateral series since 2013 due to political tensions. Since then, the arch-rivals have only faced off in global ICC events, the latest being the T20 World Cup.

'It is a good gesture and we should thank him. But until the governments from the two countries do not sit down to discuss their problems, till then the third parties cannot do anything. 'It also depends on the cricket boards of both the nations and what their thought process is. If all parties agree, and if there is a bilateral series between India and Pakistan in Dubai, it will be great for the sport,' Amir said, according to a press release issued by Abu Dhabi T10.
