Regarding the Pakistan Cricket Board’s plan of action to have an annual four-nation tournament which has various countries like Pakistan, India, Australia, and England, ICC is disappointed with a bulk of the International Cricket Council members. The idea was proposed by the leader of PCB Ramiz Raja, at the time of the ICC board meeting in Dubai on Sunday and gave a meticulous outline.
The majority opined that it is important for boards to focus more on complementary decisions. According to sources who attended the ICC meeting, said, “The Asian Cricket Council members felt that going ahead they will only have the Asia Cup as a multi-team event in Asia and did not back the four-nation tournament, simultaneously, the FTP is too stringent, it’s hard to get in a fresh tournament at this stage certainly.”
Before the ICC tournament, Ramiz said that he was putting his plan of action forward as an ICC Board member and not as chief of PCB. His tweet reads, “Great discussion regarding four countries series today at the ICC meeting. As a concept, it was welcomed and debated upon and seen as promoting the interest in the game. Fingers crossed. More when I am back at the office tomorrow.”
