Dubai: Jan 28, 2014

Amidst all the controversy at the International Cricket Council (ICC) ahead of this week’s vital board meeting, hopes of an India-Pakistan series have surfaced.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India‘s(BCCI) Emergent Working Committee, which met in Chennai last week, approved a series against Pakistan and the sudden turnaround is being seen by many as a carrot that has been dangled for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to support India’s proposal — along with England and Australia — to gain huge executive and financial powers in the ICC.

Former ICC president Ehsan Mani told Gulf News, “BCCI has at least twice in the past offered to play against Pakistan if the PCB supported the BCCI at the ICC and each time it has reneged on its promise.”

India are due to tour Pakistan but because of security concerns they may opt to play in the UAE. Pakistan have been staging all their home series in recent years and it is understood the BCCI has told the PCB that, despite a tight schedule, India would be available to play in the UAE.

It is understood Pakistan are to play Zimbabwe in Dubai during December but, if the India series happens, then the Zimbabwe tour would be postponed.

Meanwhile, former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja has urged the PCB to support the India-Australia-England proposal.

“Eventually it is a proposal that will be accepted,” Rameez said. “Pakistan must make best use of this situation and try to not only get long-term financial benefits but also more series against these three nations.”

Seven votes are required for the proposal to pass and most nations, especially those struggling financially, are expected to support the proposal to maintain India’s support.
