New Delhi: Sania Mirza, on Thursday, advocated resumption of bilateral cricketing ties between India and Pakistan, saying such a move can help in improving relations between the two countries.

"The very fact is obviously people love it. You say that in the (World Cup) semifinal (in Mohali between the two teams). I think it can make the relations between the two countries better. It's obvious, you have the two Prime Ministers watching (together), so it's good stuff," Sania said.

"I don't know why not. I am telling there is hardly any difference whether I am married to a Indian or a Pakistani person."

Cricket  will boost Indo-Pak ties: Sania

Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza married former Pakistan skipper Shoaib Malik in April last year.

Sania, who got married to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik in April last year, also emphasised on the positives of getting married to a sportsman.

"Being married to a sportsman, it's really is a blessing in a lot of ways. Because a lot of times, you don't need to explain a lot of things and they just go with it. You don't need to explain the pressure, you don't need to explain why you need to sleep at 10.

"These are things that are small, but they do cause issues," the tennis ace said.

Sania also thanked Shoaib for his support in times of need.

"The fact is that Shoaib has been a great support to me, he has helped me a lot coming out of a difficult phase, when I didn't know what to do.

As far as personalities are concerned, both are different.

"We have our share of... We are extremely different personalities. He is extremely calm and I almost get irritated because of that," she said.
