Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim said that India and Pakistan should play against each other regularly.

Despite all the political landscape and the tension between both countries, the all-rounder feels that India is a world class team and playing against them would be special.

"As a player, you always want to compete at the highest level and against the best teams which is why these games are so special for us. I feel that being two world-class teams, India and Pakistan should play regularly against each other," said Imad in an interview with

The victory against India was Pakistan's first-ever victory in the shortest format of the game on the global stage. The men in green registered a 10-wicket victory over the arch-rival in the Super-12 stage of the tournament.

"It was really good and beating India always provides some special moments for everyone involved in Pakistan cricket. Of course, I enjoyed the occasion and the match, and the result was just perfect. There was pressure on us, but it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play against India in a Twenty20 World Cup and I was really grateful for that opportunity," said Imad.

"It felt like everything we touched that day turned to gold. Make no mistake India are a very, very good side, but we just outclassed them on the day. The way we played was just fantastic and I would say that it was a near-perfect performance. In fact, I would go so far as to say that what we achieved on that day will be difficult to replicate in the future," added the Pakistan all-rounder.
