ICC BOARD MEET: PCB chief Raja to pitch for 4-Nation tournament

New Delhi: The all-powerful ICC board will conclude its two-day meeting on Sunday with the process of nominating/renominating the chairman along with the ambitious four-nation proposal pitched by PCB chairman Ramiz Raja to be placed on the table.
Raja, who has prepared a white paper for an annual four-nation meet (T20/ODI) involving Pakistan, India, Australia and England, to be held under the aegis of ICC, believes that revenue to the tune of USD 750 million could be raked in by the parent body and distributed among its members.
While India only plays Pakistan in multi-nation events like Asia Cup and World Cup, the multi-nation tournament becomes a tricky issue and it remains to be seen whether BCCI shows any keen interest.
As of now, BCCI wants to honour all its bilateral commitments with a jam-packed calendar and whether a window can be squeezed in is the bone of contention.
It is understood that ICC, which doesn’t allow member nations to conduct more than tri-nation meets, would not like to organize an event which can dilute its own marquee events like T20 World Cup and ODI World Cup.
