Cricket Australia chief Nick Hockley is open to hosting a tri-series with Pakistan and India. The earlier plan was to conduct a four-nation T20 Super Series among India, Pakistan, England, and Australia.
Hockley stated ahead of the second Test against Pakistan in Karachi that Australia is interested in hosting a tri-series with India and Pakistan. He said that personally, he really enjoys the tri-series concept. In the past, it’s worked well. They would be delighted to host… games.
In Australia, there are significant Indian and Pakistani communities. It’s a tournament that everyone in cricket wants to see, and if they can help support further possibilities, they would be delighted to do so.
PCB President Ramiz Raja’s idea of potential Australia hosting tri-series
The proposal was introduced by PCB chairman Raja in January this year. He stated that the goal is to produce cash that may be shared not just among the four boards, but also among the cricket boards affiliated with the International Cricket Council.
He proposes to form a new Limited Liability Company (LLC) at the ICC to manage the four-nation Super Series, complete with a dedicated CEO. A new structure for the pooling and sharing of money is required.
He had stated that he was explaining the notion. The financials/money might be split among the ICC Boards in a phased percentage way. They will need to construct an FTP window for this.
