As India’s lack of interest has not diminished, Pakistan Cricket Committee Chairman Ramiz Raja says he will discuss a proposal to launch a four-country ODI tournament with fellow BCCI fellow Sourav Ganguly at a March 19 meeting of the Dubai Asian Cricket Council (ACC). Ramiz told reporters. He has proposed a tournament at the Karachi National Stadium, with Australia and England also taking part, to allow Indian and Pakistani players to play more often with each other and to increase revenue for other member countries at the International Cricket Council.

“I will talk about Sourav Ganguly when we meet for the ACC meeting in Dubai. We are both former captains and players and for us cricket is not about politics,” he said.

“Even if India does not go with us on this proposal, we will consider launching an annual event of three countries with Australia and England in Pakistan,” he added.

The former captain also expressed confidence that India would come to Pakistan to play in the Asian Cup next year.

“I think they will come and if they don’t travel to Pakistan we will see what can be done,” he added.


BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has already rejected Ramiz’s proposal, saying India was more prone to the globalization of sport and not a short-term financial incentive.

Sri Lanka will host the Asia Cup T20 format event this year and the final dates for the tournament will be set in Dubai, which is expected to take place in October-November ahead of the Australian ICC World T20 Cup.
