The last time the cricketing fraternity witnessed a Test match between India and Pakistan bilateral was more than a decade again in December 2007 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. Barring multi-team tournaments like ICC World Cups, Asia Cups, and ICC Champions Trophies, the rival nations haven’t played against each other in a decade.

India vs Pakistan

The Men in Blue long have often been dominating in the aforementioned games. However, Pakistan seems to have improved in the recent past, achieving enviable success against the 3-time World Cup champs both in ODIs and T20Is. Thus, there has been a general outroar for a potential Test Series between the two sides. Iceland Cricket takes a dig at England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and offers to host a Test series between India and Pakistan Tests with insane benefits.

Just a couple of days ago, RCB reportedly proposed England as a neutral venue to host an India vs Pakistan Test Series. Martin Darlow, ECB deputy chairman, had put the offer forward to PCB president Ramiz Raja during the ongoing England tour of Pakistan according to ESPNCricinfo.

However, Iceland Cricket has now joined the race (though just for fun) and offered a much better deal than ECB. The deal includes 24-hour Daylight (the sun barely sets in Iceland), Sniper Security, and ‘better tweets’ covering the action.

In a follow-up sarcastic Tweet aimed at ECB, Iceland Cricket has listed out some insane perks they are ready to offer if Iceland gets to host India vs Pakistan Test Series. Perks that ECB cannot offer.

These include a battle (called sword joust) where captains have to ride on a horse and try to best each other using a sword, the Volcanic Ashes Trophy, and 15 consecutive sessions of play per Test (again, a merciless shot at England for their rain-affected games). The hilarious admin of @icelandcricket has also offered all the fans free Volcano tours if Iceland is allowed to host Test series between India and Pakistan. 

However, the ECB-Iceland banter aside, the actual possibility of an India vs Pakistan bilateral series (in any format) happening in foreseeable future is ‘next to nil’ as confirmed by a BCCI source. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) head Ramiz Raja has also not expressed any interest in the offer laid out by ECB.
