BENGALURU, May 31: Former India cricketer VVS Laxman today backed the government�s decision to not play a bilateral series against Pakistan, saying it is �beyond sport at the moment�.

�I think I always enjoyed playing against Pakistan, but it is very important to respect whatever the government�s decision is because it is beyond sport at the moment,� he told reporters on the sidelines of an event organised by P&G Shiksha here.

On the upcoming Champions Trophy match between India and Pakistan on June 4, Laxman said Pakistan are a very good team but if India play to their potential they would win the contest in Birmingham.

�I think Pakistan are a very good team and any match between India and Pakistan will be high-intensity match. The match will be played before a packed Birmingham house, but I am confident, if we play to our potential we will definitely go on to win the game,� he said. Laxman also expressed confidence of India defending the title, especially after their all-round performance in the two practice matches ahead of the Champions Trophy. �I am very confident that India would do well in the Champions Trophy and they will defend the title, especially the way they played in the last two warm-up games,� the stylish Hyderabadi batsman said. � PTI
