Australia ready to host India-Pakistan Test: Australia Melbourne Cricket Club On BCCI PCB

Australia's Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) has proposed to host the India-Pakistan Test match. There has not been a Test match between the two neighbours since 2007. At the same time, since 2013, these two teams have not played any bilateral series. Now both countries play only in International Cricket Council (ICC) and Asian Cricket Council (ACC) events.
Talking to SEN Radio after the Australia-South Africa second Test in Melbourne on Thursday, MCG CEO Stuart Fox said that he is ready to organize a Test series between India and Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. We have also talked to Cricket Australia on this issue. However, due to the busy schedule of both countries, it is very difficult to organize it.
Soon after Fox's statement, a CA spokesperson said- 'The organization of the India-Pakistan Test series depends on the Indian Cricket Board and the Pakistan Cricket Board. If both countries agree to play the test among themselves. So Australia Cricket is ready to host it.
Australia hosted the T20 World Cup in the month of October-November and the India-Pakistan match was played in Melbourne. More than 90 thousand spectators had reached to watch this match. The Melbourne Cricket Club is very excited about this.
The eyes of cricket lovers around the world remain on the India-Pakistan match. The match should be played anywhere between these two countries. Fans turn up in large numbers to watch. Millions of people watch on TV and digital platforms as well.
The teams of both countries are not playing bilateral series at each other's homes due to political relations. At present, no such series is mentioned in the schedule of these two neighbours from 2023 to 2027. Not only this, but India also refused to play in the Asia Cup to be held in Pakistan next year and talked about organizing it at a neutral place. At the same time, in response to this, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has also said to think about participating in the ODI World Cup to be held in India next year.
