Political Reasons Affecting Indo-Pak Cricket Ties: Qureshi

New York, Sep 11 (PTI): One half of the 'Indo-Pak Express' that has touched hearts with its message of peace, Pakistan tennis player Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi hoped that his partnership with Rohan Bopanna would inspire a resumption of cricketing ties between the two countries.

Qureshi and Bopanna finished runners-up in the US Open finals yesterday after going down to top-seeded American brothers Mike and Bob Bryan 6-7 (5) 6-7 (4).

The pair, which has been playing with the message of 'Stop War and Start Tennis', has become a symbol of peace in both India and Pakistan -- the two neighbours whose already strained ties deteriorated further after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Since the attack, the cricket ties between the two countries have all but snapped and Qureshi hoped that there is a resumption soon.
