Former PCB chairman talks about Pak vs Ind series

Tauqeer Zia, the former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has talked about Pakistan vs India series. He says the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has never denied a series with Pakistan.

To note that Pak vs Ind contests have always been the high-voltage ones over the decade. With an immense craze in the fans to enjoy the matches between arch-rivals, there have been multiple developments going on for the revival of Pak vs Ind cricket, however, none feels successful so far.

Despite the craze and high viewership every time the arch-rivals contest, there has been no Pak vs Ind bilateral series since 2012. The men in green and blue have only contested each other in the ICC and ACC events since then. The last meet up took place in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, when Pakistan thrashed away India by 10 wickets.

There have been talks going on regarding the tri-series or four-nation series. The idea of tri-nation series including Pakistan, India, and Australia was triggered by Cricket Australia (CA) CEO, and was adored by the PCB chairman Ramiz Raja.

The PCB chairman asked to include the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) alongside India, and Australia, making it a four-nation series however, the ECB, BCCI, and ICC showed no interest with the majority turning down the initiative.

It must be noted Pak vs Ind now will be seen during the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, as the teams will contest on 23rd October. In an interview with Cricket Pakistan, Zia narrated Pak vs Ind cricket is now more a governmental problem.

“BCCI has never refused to play against us [Pakistan]. The problem lies on the government-to-government level. Both cricketing boards are currently run by former cricketers who understand the importance of Pakistan-India matches. Sourav Ganguly and Ramiz Raja both want to promote cricket and there is nothing better than seeing a contest between these rivals,” 

He also mentioned that the four-nation series was a great idea that is not practically possible.

“Although the four-nation series was a great idea there are already so many franchise-model tournaments happening throughout the year. Because of this, I do not think there will be enough room left to gather the four nations in one timeframe,”
