The England and Wales Cricket Board has formally proposed to host a bilateral Test series between India and Pakistan, but according to BCCI sources, the prospects of that happening in the near future are “close to nothing.”
According to the UK newspaper “Telegraph,” Martin Darlow, the deputy chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, met with the Pakistan Cricket Board during the current Twenty20 series and offered to host a three-match Test series at England’s stadiums in the future.
The ECB made the offer for its own economic gain, but the BCCI’s ruling class scoffed off the notions and said that no such opportunities might present themselves, at least not in the near future.
“First off, it’s strange that ECB talked to PCB about an Indo-Pak series. Whatever the case, the government will determine whether to play a series against Pakistan, not the BCCI. The position is still the same as of right now. Pakistan is a team we only play at multi-team competitions.”
