According to a report by Code Sports Australia, Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board Rameez Raja will propose to the International Cricket Council (ICC) at the next meeting to hold an annual series between the four countries.
PCB considering proposal for an annual series
Apart from Pakistan, the four countries vying for the series will include traditional rivals India, England, and Australia. On the other hand, this development is being considered to restore bilateral relations between Pakistan and traditional rival India. The last joint series between the two countries was played in 2012-13. It may be recalled that former chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board Najam Sethi had planned 6 series between the two countries during 2015-16 but this was not possible due to tension in the political environment.
After the meeting of Najam Sethi, both the teams have played only ICC and ACC tournaments. Besides, Rameez Raja has also talked about the upcoming tour of Australia by the PCB to Pakistan. It is to be noted that the Australian team is touring Pakistan in March this year after 23 years. During this tour, both teams will play three Tests, three ODIs, and one T20 International.
