Ramiz Raja intents to propose an annual quadrangular T20I series that features Pakistan, India, England and Australia i.e. the big three during the next ICC board meeting which is due in March. Explaining the proposal to ESPNcricinfo the 59 year old said, “My view is that a new structure based on pooling and sharing of income should be formed. The idea is to register a company that works under the ICC and has a dedicated Chief Executive Officer regulating the entire financial model, with the income divided among all the members. There are numerous rivalries like Ashes, Pakistan-India rivalry so it can’t go wrong when four T20 sides come and play each other. We need to whet the fans’ appetite as they are getting fatigued, and we need to create something outside the FTP.

“I am not a big fan of bilateral T20 series as T20I cricket needs a new life amid the challenges around franchise cricket. Playing five bilateral T20Is is tedious, but if three or four nations play each other rather than bilateral series, that has a massive potential in terms of generating revenue. It’s not like we need to create a parallel body like the Big Four, but it’s about generating interest and the income can go to the other boards too.”

It is worth mentioning here that India has repeatedly said “No” to playing a bilateral series against Pakistan since 2013. Moreover, Indian politicians have recently raised the demand of India not playing Pakistan even in ICC events. So, there is this good probability of the idea not taking off as Ramiz wants it to.
