Ramiz Raja proposal for 4-nation T20I 'Super Series' including India, Pakistan

Ramiz Raja proposal for 4-nation T20I 'Super Series' including India, Pakistan

Over the past multiple years, the international cricket matches between India and Pakistan have been limited to (Asia Cup) continental and (ICC) global tournaments. Both teams last time they met was in a T20 World Cup last year, and it has been more than nine years since they took part in a series. Pakistan had toured India for three ODIs and T20Is in December 2012.

Ramiz Raja, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, ahead of the side's T20 World Cup clash against India, had addressed the shortage of games between both countries. On Tuesday, he took to Twitter account to share his proposal to restart cricket between both teams.

Raja has suggested an annual quadrangular 'Super Series' involving India, Pakistan, Australia, and England, played in the game's shortest format.

Raja wrote.

"Hello, fans. We will propose to the ICC a Four Nations T20i Super Series involving Eng Ind Aus Pak to be played every year and hosted on rotation basis by these four. A separate revenue model with profits to be shared on a percentage basis with all ICC members think we have a winner,"

International cricket had returned to Pakistan in 2019, and the country has also been given the hosting rights for the 2025 Champions Trophy. Last month, Pakistan hosted West Indies for a limited-overs series, which was cut short due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the visitors' camp.

In the T20 World Cup last year, Pakistan broke its winless streak against India with a dominant 10-wicket victory. The side eventually fell short to eventual champions Australia in the semi-finals.

With packed international calendars, respective T20 leagues of all countries named in the 'Super Series,' and an ICC tournament scheduled every year until 2031, it will be interesting to see how the PCB chairman lays out the annual chart for the proposed tournament.
