Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf has enquired after Indian politician Bal Thackeray and sent him a “get well soon” message.


Shiv Sena chief Thackeray was in critical condition last night, and party spokesman now says he is stable.
“I have sent a message of get well soon to Mr Bal Thackeray,” AFP quoted Ashraf as saying.
“Our religion and our Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] taught us that we should wish everyone good health and life and following that I have wished him well and sent him a bouquet.”


Pakistan is scheduled to play series with India next month, but Thackeray demanded Delhi should not revive cricketing ties until Pakistan has brought the perpetrators of 2008 Mumbai terror attacks to justice.
However, the Indian government earlier this month cleared a tour of two Twenty20 and three one-day internationals by a Pakistan team in December-January.


“I hope that Mr Thackeray gets well soon and plays his part in bringing the two nations together by supporting both the teams during this series,” said Ashraf.
