Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ramiz Raja is very optimistic about the bilateral series between India and Pakistan. He hopes that the forthcoming meeting on the India-Pakistan series could lead to important decisions.
A meeting between India and Pakistan Cricket Board officials is likely to take place in Dubai. This meeting may lead to important decisions on bilateral series and quadrilateral series.
BCCI and PCB officials have arrived in Dubai to attend the ICC meeting to be held in Dubai. The meeting is scheduled to be held from April 6 to April 10. According to Pakistani media, officials of the India and Pakistan Cricket Boards will decide on the bilateral series in consultation with each other at this time.
The Pakistan Cricket Board will also propose a T20 series between the four countries, including India, Pakistan, Australia and England. Although India has said so many times before, they are not even considering the possibility of such a series at the moment.
The Pakistan Cricket Board has repeatedly expressed interest in a bilateral series with India, but the Indian Cricket Board has never agreed. In such a situation, the possibility of a series between India and Pakistan is very unlikely.
The last bilateral series between India and Pakistan was held in 2012. At that time, Pakistan toured India under the captaincy of Mohammad Hafeez and Pakistan won the three-match ODI series 2-1. Pakistan beat India by six wickets in the first ODI. They won the second match by 75 runs.
The last match was the toughest and in the end India won by 10 runs. The Twenty20 series of the same tour was drawn. Since then, relations between the two countries have deteriorated and no series has taken place. Now only two teams are playing against each other in the ICC tournament.
