Australia can host India-Pakistan Test matches in future
Pakistan and India have not clashed in Test matches since 2007. The two arch-rivals take on each other in ICC events and Asia Cup of shorter formats. However, despite the introduction of the World Test Championship, India and Pakistan have not contested against each other in the longest format of the game.
Waqar Younis has also opened up on the need for the red ball matches between the two nations.
“The ICC should have intervened and done something because to me having a Test championship without Pakistan and India Test matches makes no sense,” Younis said during an interview to YouTube channel Cricket Baaz.
Earlier, Aussie player Usman Khawaja had stated about Australia hosting India-Pakistan Test matches.
“None of that matters – when you’re in Australia, you actually gravitate towards the subcontinent guys. When I see that, I just think ‘all together in Australia we get along, and we don’t even think twice about where we’re from. It doesn’t really matter to us.
“I want to see some red-ball games. I want to see Pakistan spinners take on Indian spinners, Pakistan batters take on Indian batters in the longer form because that’s the true test. It’d be so great for world cricket if at some stage we can work together to get that happening again,” he had stated.
