Former Pakistan captains Rashid Latif and Moin Khan urged the ICC to give India-Pakistan series the iconic status.
The response to this ongoing short series and the way the people followed the first T20 match in Bangalore, it is a clear indication that the ICC needs to give iconic status to Indo-Pak matches, Latif told.
"The ICC needs to keep a window open for Indo-Pak series in its FTP with special status after taking both Boards into confidence. That is the only way cricket relations between Pakistan and India will not be affected by the political scenario," Latif added.
Moin argued that the Indo-Pak matches are bigger than even the traditional Ashes contests.
