India Must Reward Pakistan for Supporting 'Big Three': Shaharyar Khan


  • PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan feels that India is yet to fulfil it’s promise, after Pakistan supported ‘ Big Three’ system , which started since last year, where India, England and Australia will share bulk of the ICC’s profit and will have a key role in the decision making. Talking with the reporters, Shaharyar Khan said that Pakistan supported ‘ Big Three’ system just because BCCI promised that they will resume the Indo-Pak bilateral ties after that. 

    Khan also added that BCCI signed a MOU of playing 6 bilteral series between 2015 to 2023. He is still optimistic of the ties resuming soon. Under the MOU< the first series was scheduled to start this December,Pakistan being the hosts in UAE, the series consisting of two tests, five ODIs and a T20 match.

    PCB has already sent a letter to BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur, asking him for the confirmation of the series in December. It was back in 2007 that these 2 teams played a bilateral series in Test cricket. With the political tensions between the two countries mounting again, it is highly unlikely to see the two teams lining up for a bilateral series.

    Earlier, Anurag Thakur had said in a press conference that a bilateral series can’t be possible after what Pakistan has been doing politically across the border. The recent set of events will also play a part, making it more unlikely.

    As a cricekt fan, we can just hope that cricket remains away from politics and we get to see, what is arguably the best rivalry in World Cricket at the moment.
