CyrusSaysEp388.png

On this week's episode of LANSO Cyrus joins us over the phone from Phuket (where he's apparently on a secret mission sent by the BCCI) and in the studio is the producer of Cyrus Says, Abbas. Both of them look back at the much hyped but ultimately very one-sided India-Pak match, and question whether the rivalry between the two teams is now becoming more of a myth. Cyrus also briefly touches upon the dominance of Bangladesh over the West Indies and gives his take on why the decline of Pakistan and West Indies cricket teams is bad for world cricket in general.
