Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) President Rameez Raja is determined to propose a four-nation tournament every year with teams from India, Australia and England, despite a cold response from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). A reliable source in the PCB said that Rameez is still working on his proposal and has discussed it with some other key board officials as well. BCCI secretary Jay Shah rejected Rameez’s offer but Cricket Australia chief executive Nick Hockley said Australia was open to considering organizing a triangular series with India and Pakistan. Hockley was in Rawalpindi for the first test match between Pakistan and Australia. He said that it is his personal opinion that it can be materialized. “If you ask me, Cricket Australia is certainly ready to consider this proposal and consider hosting a triangular series between Pakistan, India and Australia,” Hockley told reporters. Australia’s team has reached Pakistan to play Test series after 24 years. Rawalpindi Test match between both the teams ended in a draw. Australia has to play three test matches in Pakistan. Apart from this, three one-day international matches are to be played. There was no bilateral series between India and Pakistan for a long time. It will be interesting to see how the BCCI will react after Australia’s idea.
