Mohammad Rizwan has claimed that players from both India and Pakistan want to play with each other.

In a surprising statement from the former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Tauqir Zia has said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has never refused to play a bilateral series against their arch-rivals Pakistan. The two last played a bilateral series in 2012-13. The Men in Blue contested against Pakistan during the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The Men in Green won that game by 10 wickets.

The current PCB chairman Ramiz Raja had recently proposed a four-nation series tournament that included Australia, England, India, and Pakistan. However, the proposal has not seen a green light to date.

“BCCI has never refused to play against Pakistan. The problem is at the government level. Both boards are run by two former cricketers, Sourav Ganguly and Ramiz Raja, who want cricket between the two arch-rivals,” Tauqir said in an interview with Cricket Pakistan.

The former PCB chairman also said that the four-nation series was a good idea, but it is impossible. “Although Ramiz’s idea was good, it is not possible due to a jam-packed schedule,” he added.
