Cricket Australia’s Nick Hockley shows interest in hosting tri-series involving India, Pakistan

By

Australian Cricket (CA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nick Hockley said he would love the concept of hosting a three-series tournament involving key rivals India and Pakistan.

According to 7NEWS.com.au, Hockley told reporters in Rawalpindi: “Personally, I really like the tri-series concept. It’s worked well in the past.”

“We’d be very open to hosting matches. There are really big communities of both India and Pakistan living in Australia. It’s a contest that everyone wants to see in world cricket and if we can help support further opportunities we would love to do that.”

Due to political tensions, neither India nor Pakistan have participated in bilateral series since 2012, they only compete in events hosted by the ICC or other Asian events.
