Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja feels that the possibility of seeing India and Pakistan face off in a bilateral series is quite unlikely, but a tri-nation series involving the two countries is not out of the question.

The previous time the two arch-rivals met in a bilateral series was when Pakistan toured India back in 2012-13 for a 3-match ODI series. Following that series, they have met each other only in ICC events around the world.

There is talk going around town that suggests that both boards might be looking to revive the relations between the two sides, but the political and diplomatic tensions are far too tough to deal with. Speaking about the issue in a media interaction, Ramiz said:

Bilateral series between Pakistan and India seems unlikely at this moment, but we can hope to see both teams in action in a tri-nation series perhaps.

“I have good working relation and communication with Sourav Ganguly” – Ramiz Raja

Ramiz Raja further mentioned that his professional relationship with BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly, is quite friendly, and the two former cricketers can work out the differences and see where the path leads them to.

I have good working relations with Sourav Ganguly, and we have good communication; discussing cricket on a global stage and it can be improved. When two former cricketers are managing things, then they focus on cricketing matters, and it becomes an easier thing from an administrative standpoint,” Ramiz mentioned.

In their most recent encounter in the T20 World Cup, Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in a lop-sided encounter in Dubai.
