Regarding BCCI as “unreliable”, Mani said Pakistan’s cricket was quite vibrant and strong despite not playing a bilateral series with India long ago.
“We have suffered losses but they (India) are not in our thinking or planning. It’s like Pies in the Sky situation. We have to live without them and we don’t need them to survive,” he said in a podcast released by the PCB media department.
“I am sure if India does not want to play, we must make plans without them. Once or twice they have promised to play against us but step down at the last moment,” the former ICC head added.
India has avoided playing Pakistan in a full bilateral series since the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.
Mani said the resumption of bilateral cricket relations with India in the future is uncertain.
“Right now we are playing against them (India) in the ICC and the Asian Cup and that is okay because we are interested in playing cricket.
“We want to separate politics and sports,” he said.
