Cricket Australia is willing to stage a tri-series that Australia will host featuring arch-rivals India and Pakistan.

Nick Hockley, the CEO of Cricket Australia, has stated that Australia is ready to organizing a tri-series between Pakistan and India. According to him, the country has a large population of Indian and Pakistani communities.

“Personally, I really like the tri-series concept,” Hockley told reporters in Rawalpindi. In the past, it worked well. We’d be delighted to host… matches. In Australia, there are significant Indian and Pakistani communities. It’s a tournament that everyone in cricket loves to see, and if we can help support further possibilities, we’d be delighted to do so.”

Pakistan and India last played an ODI and T20 series in 2012-13, as well as a test series in 2007.

Only ICC events including as the ICC Champions Trophy, ICC World Cup, and T20 World Cup have brought the two archrivals together.

The last time India and Pakistan met was at the ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai. For the first time in a world cup competition, Pakistan defeated India, ending India’s winning streak.

In January, PCB Chief Ramiz Raja proposed an annual Quadrangular T20 series including Pakistan, India, Australia, and England, which would be hosted by all four countries on a rotating basis. However, neither the International Cricket Council (ICC) nor any of the four cricket boards have implemented this plan.

The next match between Pakistan and India will take place in the ICC T20 world cup on October 23, 2022, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
