Today match best prediction : CA Chief Nick Hockley “We’d be quite open to hosting India and Pakistan in Australia for a tri-series.

Cricket Australia (CA) CEO Nick Hockley has stated that the board is open to hosting archrivals India and Pakistan in a tri-series in Australia, citing the country’s large Indian and Pakistani populations.

Since 2012-13, India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral series or bilateral Tests. Only in International Cricket Council (ICC) competitions like as the ODI and T20 World Cups, as well as the Asian Cricket Council’s Asia Cup, have the two teams met (ACC). They most recently met in Dubai for the T20 World Cup 2021, where Pakistan won for the first time ever in a World Cup match.

The international cricket fraternity has made several attempts to bring the two countries together on the field, but political enmity between the two nations has prohibited any matches between the two teams from taking place, even on neutral grounds.

In January, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja suggested an annual four-nation T20 series between Pakistan, India, Australia, and England, which would be hosted by the teams on a rotating basis. The International Cricket Council (ICC) and none of the four cricket boards named, however, supported this concept.

Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Nick Hockley, on the other hand, has said that the country is open to exploring the possibility of India and Pakistan staging a tri-series in Australia. He did clarify, though, that CA has not considered Ramiz Raja’s suggestion for a four-nation T20I series.

“The tri-series idea appeals to me personally. In the past, it’s worked well. We’d be delighted to host… matches. In Australia, there are significant Indian and Pakistani populations. “It’s a competition that everyone in global cricket wants to see, and if we can assist promote further possibilities, we would love to do so,” Hockley said in Rawalpindi.

The next meeting between the two rivals, India and Pakistan, will take place on October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in Australia during the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2022.
