Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja has proposed the idea of an annual quadrangular series to be played involving 4 countries- Pakistan, India, Australia, and England. The tournament would be played in the T20 format as each nation would get the opportunity to host the series on a rotation basis.

On Tuesday Ramiz Raja shared this information on Twitter that he would propose this idea to the next ICC meeting.

“Hello fans.Will propose to the ICC a Four Nations T20i Super Series involving Pak Ind Aus Eng to be played every year, to be hosted on a 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,” Ramiz Raja tweeted.

Notable that Ramiz Raja is trying hard to revive cricket in Pakistan as he is now eying for the India-Pakistan series. India and Pakistan haven’t faced each other in bilateral series since 2012-13 when Pakistan toured India for a series of 3 ODIs and 2 T20Is. Pakistan won the ODI series by a 2-1 margin while the T20I series was drawn by 1-1.

Since then, the two teams have faced each other in only multination tournaments like World Cup, Champions Trophy, and Asia Cup. Neither Pakistan players get chances to play in the Indian Premier League.

Meanwhile, Raja arranged a quite packed schedule for Pakistan as they will host lots of cricket in Pakistan. In March-April they will host a full-fledged series against Australia as they will play a series of 3 Tests, 3 ODIs, and one-off T20I. England and New Zealand are also scheduled to visit the country in the next 18 months.

West Indies visited Pakistan last month to play a limited-overs series however the tour was cut short as there was a covid outbreak in the West Indies camp. Pakistan clean swept the T20I series by 3-0 but the ODI series has been postponed to April 2021.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will begin on January 27 and the final is scheduled to play on February 27. All games will be played in two venues- Karachi and Lahore.
