Islamabad - Pakistan Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi said he wants his country's cricket board to stop pushing for a series against India and concentrate more on persuading other teams to tour Pakistan.

Afridi told reporters on Friday in Lahore, "I don't know why we are pushing for a series against India again and again. I don't see any reason to play (against India) if they don't want to play. "

The Pakistan Cricket Board is still waiting for the green light from its Indian counterpart for December's planned Test and limited-overs series in the United Arab Emirates.

Both countries' cricket boards have signed an agreement to play at least six times in between 2015-2023, but the India board needs its government's approval to revive cricketing ties with Pakistan.
