KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board has included two tri-series involving Australia and England at home in their Future Tours Program, which is ready to run from 2023 to 2027.
A Pakistan Cricket Board supply mentioned on Wednesday that in the new FTP, which might be finalised at the ICC chief govt’s assembly subsequent week, Pakistan has included two home tri-series.
“Pakistan has taken the stance that since it will not be playing India in any bilateral series in the new FTP cycle it wants to host more tri-series events at home to generate revenue,” the supply mentioned.
He mentioned that in the new FTP, Pakistan could be taking part in fewer Tests in contrast to different nations.
“Bangladesh and West Indies have more matches because they will play India several times in the new FTP while Pakistan will not.”
The supply mentioned one other concern which PCB has raised was that prime three cricket-taking part in nations — India, Australia and England — all have scheduled five-Test sequence towards one another in the new FTP whereas different sides might be taking part in primarily two, three or in some instances 4 Test sequence.
“Eight five percent of the new FTP is final and Pakistan will play a total of 133 international games between 2023 and 2027, including 12 home series against Australia, England, New Zealand,” he added.
The supply mentioned that Pakistan will play a minimal of 29 Tests, 49 ODIs and 55 T20 internationals in the new cycle however matches may improve as properly at the time of finalisation of the FTP.
