Reacting to Javed Miandad’s tirade against India, BCCI president Anurag Thakur on Tuesday said the former captain was still in a state of shock over Pakistan’s winless record in both the battlefield and cricket field.

After India’s surgical strike across the Line of Control, Miandad had said that Pakistan was ready for an all-out war against India. “Pakistan is still not over the trauma inflicted by India in the wars of 1965, 1971 and Kargil. Same with Miandad who also remains to be in shock for not being able to beat India even once in World Cup history. If needed, India will make Pakistan bite the dust again, whether it is on the battlefield or cricket field,” Thakur, who is also BJP MP, said.

Further taking a dig at Miandad, Thakur said the former captain should tell his relative and underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim, to come out in the open. “If Miandad is so confident about his own people, he should tell Dawood to come back to India. Why doesn’t he do that? We have always defeated Pakistan and will do so again in the future,” Thakur added.

The BCCI chief has already ruled out the possibility of resuming cricketing ties with Pakistan in the current scenario. Additionally, BCCI has asked ICC to keep India in separate groups for future tournaments given the political climate.

    Pak Overall wins?? They are all fraud. Why you guys stopped winning after anti ball tampering laws, neutral umpires, anti fixing laws, anti pitch tampering laws, anti chucking laws, anti drug use law. Just delete the matches won with fraud and see how the overall record looks.

              Share the total Record. India are jealous of him because of Dawood Ibrahim factor. By these remarks it clears BCCI is not for cricket but for rogue Indian agenda. World of cricket is suffering from this Rogue board otherwise it can have close pority to football

                  Javed miandad is a rouge and he is not a true sportsman. The biggest joker is Shahid Afridi saying that stan is a peace loving nation - go and tell this to your military not to us. Your military has got no job and create problems in the border. (worst after another - Zia),lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Indian express - please refrain from posting anti-india on this. We cannot forget 26/11 and now the recent incidents....
