A source from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was spotted talking with media personnel where it added that the two-match Test series will no more be on the board’s agenda from the calendar year 2023.
The PCB believes that playing at least a three-match test series is essential as only two red-ball contests will not generate expected results whereas, the three-match test series allows teams to gain maximum.
No more two-match Test series, says PCB
“It is very important to have a three-match Test series as the experience to have two-match series could not fetch the desired results. Three-match series allows opponent teams to gain maximum from the bilateral events.”
It is pertinent to mention here the four-years-old policy of the board progressed two-match Test series amidst some forces from the back.
Four years back we had opted for two-match Test series that in some cases backfired, forcing the PCB to change the future course of action when it comes to hosting the series or playing Test matches abroad,” the source in the PCB said.
Moreover, the source from the PCB added about Ind vs Pak bilateral series saying that the rivalry could only be possible when the government of the two ends mutually agree upon the decision. The spokesperson reckoned that India is not the board’s priority at the moment.
As far as the bilateral series against India is concerned, that is only possible if the governments on either side of the border agree to revive cricket ties. At this point of time, India is not our priority when it comes to finalizing the bilateral future Test series,” the source added.
