Mumbai:Shiv Sena supremo on Wednesday expressed his opposition to the forthcoming series between India and Pakistan.

"I still maintain my old stand that we should not invite Pakistan here and play cricket with them," he said in Mumbai on Wednesday.

He said all those who wanted to play were "shameless".

The Pakistan team, which will be playing in India after a gap of six years, is scheduled to arrive in the country on February 25 to play three Test matches and five One-day Internationals.

Shiv Sena has openly opposed the tour arguing that Indian soldiers were being killed on the border while fighting with Pakistan and hence the country should not maintain ties with the neighbouring nation.

Sena activists had recently caused minor damage to the pitch at Mohali that is scheduled to host one of the three Tests.
