The Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Ramiz Raja had earlier suggested that there should be a quadrangular T20I Super Series featuring India, Pakistan, England, and Australia that could be organized every year. Raja had also tweeted that all the four nations can host the series with turns, and a separate revenue model will be created where the profits can be shared on a percentage basis with every member of the ICC. Raja had also tweeted that if this happens, then cricket would be the winner.

In his tweet, Ramiz Raja wrote: “Will propose to the ICC a Four Nations T20I Super Series involving Pakistan, India, Australia, and England to be played every year, to be hosted on rotational basis by these four. A separate revenue model with profits to be shared on a percentage basis with all ICC members. I think we have a winner.”

However, the Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Jay Shah reckons that the BCCI is more focused n safeguarding the bilateral series that are played at home. Shah also added that the main emphasis will be on Test match cricket. Shah is also keen to make cricket a part of the Olympics.

“With the IPL window expanding and the ICC (global) events every year in the cycle, our primary responsibility is to safeguard bilateral cricket at home, with emphasis on Test cricket. I am also looking forward to seeing cricket at the Olympics, as that will help the game grow,” said Shah.

Jay Shah also added that people should prioritize the expansion of cricket rather than focusing on a short-term commercial idea. He also opined that BCCI is also looking to conduct women’s IPL.

Elaborating the same, Jay Shah said, “Expansion of the sport is a challenge that our game faces and we must prioritize it over any short-term commercial initiative. I want to assure you that BCCI is not only sincere but is taking all necessary steps to start a full-fledged women’s league similar to the IPL soon.”
