Kapil Dev, the former Indian cricketer has lashed out at the former Pakistani cricket player, Shoaib Akhtar once again on the matter of Shoaib’s prior idea of organizing an Indo-Pak bilateral series in order to raise the Coronavirus funds.
Earlier, Kapil Dev criticized Shoaib Akhtar saying that the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has already enough money and they don’t need to organize Indo-Pak bilateral series to raise the Coronavirus funds.
The Indian cricketer says that the health of the players is more important to them rather than organizing a series at this point in time. He thinks that opening the educational institute is the first thing they shall go for.

“I am looking at the larger picture. Do you think cricket is the only issue we can talk about? I am rather worried about the children who are not being able to go to schools and colleges because that is our young generation. So, I want schools to reopen first. Cricket, football will happen eventually,” Kapil was quoted as saying in DNA.
“You could be emotional and say that yes, India and Pakistan should play matches. Playing matches is not a priority at the moment. If you need the money then you should stop the activities at the border,” the veteran added.
“If we really need money then we have so many religious organizations, they should come forward. It is their responsibility. We offer so much when we visit the religious shrines, so they should help the government,” he added.
