Possible For A Tri-nation Series Between IND And PAK: Ramiz

Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, Ramiz Raja suggested that a tri-nation series featuring India and Pakistan doesn’t seem out of possibility. However, he was knocked out of a bilateral meeting between both Asian nations. Geoff Allardice, the ICC interim chief executive, dismissed the idea of a bilateral series involving India and Pakistan earlier.

Pakistan visited India for a T20I and ODI series in 2012, and after that, the two teams have only met in ICC main events. Over the next decade, Pakistan will also stage the 2023 Asia Cup and the 2025 Champions Trophy.

Indian Sports Minister, Anurag Thakur stated that a choice on India touring Pakistan for the competitions will be made in due course. Raja, who is also a former Pakistan player, stated that he does not anticipate India quitting from multi-nation competitions.

It won’t be easy and as long as there are political hurdles involved: Raja

“It is hard to get a bilateral series with India but tri-nation series can be held at some point. As far as the international tournaments are concerned, it is not easy to pull out. Because in that case, there is pressure. And all these things are presented to the boards and I don’t think this will happen,” said Raja in an Interaction.

Since the 2005-06 season, India has not toured Pakistan. Following that, the teams faced off in a few bilateral series, however, political conflicts caused more issues between the 2 nations.

Raja also stated that he had a positive working relationship with BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. According to the experienced, politics may restrict the growth of the sport and the players.

Raja also said that – “With regards to my working relationship with Sourav Ganguly, I have that. We spoke about numerous things and how can we take the world cricket forward”.

He has concluded by saying – “There should be a benefit for everyone since cricketers are holding these positions and it is easier to talk since the bond is there. It won’t be easy and as long as there are political hurdles involved, things won’t move forward,”
