Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja is hopeful that India and Pakistan can face each other in a tri-nation series in the future as the bilateral ties seem difficult. Ramiz also said that he doesn’t expect India to pull out of the international tournaments that will be hosted in Pakistan in the upcoming years.

During a recent media interaction with the press, Ramiz Raja said, “It is hard to get a bilateral series with India but tri-nation series can be held at some point. As far as the international tournaments are concerned, it is not easy to pull out. Because in that case, there is pressure. And all these things are presented to the boards and I don’t think this will happen.”

Pakistan will be hosting the 2025 Champions Trophy in addition to the 2023 Asia Cup in upcoming years. Sports Minister Anurag Thakur said that a decision will be taken at an appropriate time with regard to India touring the neighboring country for the tournaments.

Anurag Thakur had said, “When the time comes will see what to do. The home ministry will be involved in decision-making. A lot of countries have pulled out of going to Pakistan due to security issues. Will assess the security then and decide.”

Ramiz Raja said that he has a good working relationship with Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Sourav Ganguly and they can work some things out.

PCB chairman explained, “With regards to my working relationship with Sourav Ganguly, I have that. We spoke about numerous things and how can we take world cricket forward. There should be a benefit for everyone since cricketers are holding these positions and it is easier to talk since the bond is there. It won’t be easy and as long as there are political hurdles involved, things won’t move forward.”
