PCB chief Ramiz Raja meets with Sourav Ganguly to discuss the four-nation series. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) administrator Ramiz Raja is confident of resuscitating reciprocal cricket between India and Pakistan through a four-country competition that he had proposed the year before.
After the finish of the T20 World Cup 2021 last year, the PCB boss took to Twitter to announce that he planned to propose a yearly four-country T20I series including India, Pakistan, England, and Australia to the ICC.
Nonetheless, when informed of the PCB boss’ arrangement, BCCI secretary Jay Shah referred to it as a “transient business drive” before this year, implying that the BCCI had no plans to be important for the series.
However, Raja has not given up hope of convincing the BCCI to allow India, too, to be essential for the competition, and has stated that he will soon meet with BCCI president Sourav Ganguly.
Pakistan, who share the best contention in cricket, has not played against one another in a reciprocal series beginning around 2013 because of the political pressures.
Be that as it may, Raja accepts governmental issues should be kept aside with regards to cricket as he is equipped to converse with Ganguly during the impending Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting in Dubai on March 19.
Raja likewise expressed that on the off chance that India doesn’t consent to being important in the competition, he will propose a yearly three-country event, including Pakistan, England, and Australia.
“I will converse with Sourav Ganguly about it when we meet for the ACC meeting in Dubai. The two of us are previous commanders and players, and for our purposes, cricket isn’t about governmental issues. Regardless of whether India goes with us on this proposition, we will ponder sending off a yearly three-country occasion with Australia and England in Pakistan, “Raja told journalists in Karachi, according to PTI.
Likewise, “We’ll see who goes to play in the IPL”: Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the PCB, makes an impassioned case as he reveals changes in the PSL.
India and Pakistan have met each other on significant ICC occasions beginning around 2013. The last gathering between the different sides came during the T20 World Cup 2021 last year, where Babar Azam-ed Pakistan crushed India by ten wickets to register their first success against their most despised rivals in World Cup history.
Pakistan has also won the facilitating rights for the 2022 Asia Cup, and India is expected to visit Pakistan for the competition.
The PCB president admitted that they should find another way if the BCCI does not send the Indian team to Pakistan.”I figure they will come and, on the off chance that they don’t make a trip to Pakistan, we will see what should be possible,” said Raja.
