PCB chief planning four countries T20 annual event including india

Raja said, “If India and Pakistan are not willing to play bilaterally, involve them in a four-nation event and so every year this tournament can be shifted to England, Australia, Pakistan and India.

ISLAMABAD: Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja is evolving a plan of holding a four nations annual T20 series. The proposed countries are Pakistan, India, Australia, and England who can be part of this international event.

Raja would highlight this proposal in an upcoming meeting of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Code Sports reported today.

“I have a good mind of proposing a rugby Six Nations-style series that they have a cricket series, a T20 international series outside the FTP [Future Tours Programme] where Australia, England, India, and Pakistan can play four sides,” he said.

“I was thinking of maybe introducing this concept at the ICC meeting.

“If India and Pakistan are not willing to play bilaterally, involve them in a four-nation event and so every year this tournament can be shifted to England, Australia, Pakistan and India.

“I will propose it, definitely I will and this is breaking news.”

PCB Chairman asked Australian players to tour Pakistan as it would have an emotional impact on the local fans, as they have been deprived of international matches at home. The Aussies are scheduled to tour Pakistan in early March — their first visit to the country since 1998 — for three Tests, three ODIs, and one T20I.

“There’s a lot of excitement,” Raja said.

“You’ve got to understand what it means to Pakistani fans. We’ll make sure that we make it into a grand spectacle as well.
