Calling India as Pakistan's arch-rival, Mani who has represented the Pakistan Cricket Board previously, said that the country is using it's money power to oust Pakistan, especially in cricket. "India is an archrival of Pakistan which wants to exclude Pakistan from every game, especially in cricket, and to conquer major games of the world by investing money in them," he told a Pakistan based news agency.

Accusing the Board of Control for Cricket in India of sidelining Pakistani players for the Indian Premier League, Mani said that BCCI's President (Shashank Manohar) has never wanted their participation.

The 65-year-old however also sighted that the PCB officials were no better and that 'no betterment can happen till the current lot of officials are present.'
