Many consider the cricket rivalry between India and Pakistan to be the most important in the globe right now. Spectators haven't seen a bilateral series between the two nations in a long time, but the confrontations between the Men in Blue and the Men in Green have kept fans engaged at ICC tournaments.
The PCB is always seen to be ready to play India, but the BCCI dislikes the idea. Ramiz Raja reportedly offered a plan to host an annual Super Series comprising Australia, Pakistan, England, and India. The concept, however, was rejected.
Former Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Tauqir Zia recently stated that the BCCI has never been opposed to a series between the Indian and Pakistani cricket teams, but that the government-to-government discourse must be in both cricketing boards' favor.
In an interview with Cricket Pakistan, Tauqir Zia revealed the reason why there have been no bilateral series between India and Pakistan.
“BCCI has never refused to play against us [Pakistan]. The problem lies on the government-to-government level. Both cricketing boards are currently run by former cricketers who understand the importance of Pakistan-India matches. Sourav Ganguly and Ramiz Raja both want to promote cricket and there is nothing better than seeing a contest between these rivals” said Tauqir.
