MUMBAI  - Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar today criticised the BCCI's decision to revive the Indo-Pak bilateral cricket ties as he felt Pakistan was not cooperating in the Mumbai terror attacks probe.

Gavaskar also felt that India are playing a lot of cricket in the upcoming season and any other series would only put pressure on the cricketers. England are scheduled to arrive in India for a four-match Test series followed by two Twenty20 Internationals before going home on Christmas. They would be back to play five One-day Internationals, scheduled to take place from January 11. "Well, my first reaction is that the time the players have between the England series, it is not going to be there. They are playing England in November-December but now they are not going to get the breather," Gavaskar told 'NDTV'. "Players need the time to look after their injuries and get better," he added.
