As per the proposal, apart from India and Pakistan, the other teams participating in the tournament are England and Australia. If the offer is accepted, the Asian neighbors will meet at the top level in the annual tournament. According to the White Paper, the host of the competition will be selected on a rotation basis from amongst the four participants. However, it is learned that the BCCI is unlikely to approve the tournament.
A senior BCCI official said, “Our Future Tour Program (FTP) is completely packed. Apart from this, there are many other aspects and as of now there is no change in the policy of playing them (Pakistan) only in ICC events. At the same time, we do not think that the ICC will be ready to organize a four-nation tournament and Raja’s offer will be turned down.
India and Pakistan have been facing each other only in ICC and Asian Cricket Council (ACC) tournaments since 2012. The last limited overs series between the two teams was in 2012. BCCI secretary Jay Shah had also said in a recent interview to a foreign news agency that the focus of the board is to fulfill its bilateral commitments.
