Melbourne. Seeing the success of the match played between India and Pakistan during this year’s T20 World Cup, the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) wants to host a Test match between these two countries. The MCC, which manages the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), and the Victorian government recently held talks with Cricket Australia (CA) about hosting a Test match between India and Pakistan. MCC chief executive Stuart Fox has expressed interest in hosting a Test match between India and Pakistan after the stupendous success of the T20 World Cup match played here in October.
More than 90 thousand spectators were present in this match played between these two countries. Fox told SEN Radio, “Obviously it would be great to have three consecutive Test matches at the MCG. The stadium will be packed every time. We have taken information about this. “He said,” We have talked to Cricket Australia about this. I know the (Victoria) government has done the same. I know it is very complicated amidst a busy schedule so I believe it is probably a huge challenge. Fox said Cricket Australia should talk to the International Cricket Council (ICC) about this.
He said, “It is expected that Cricket Australia will continue to talk to the ICC about this and will continue to insist on this.” When you see many stadiums empty around the world, I think a packed stadium and the atmosphere there will be better for the game. ”The bilateral Test series between India and Pakistan was last played in 2007. After this they have faced only in ICC or Asian Cricket Council tournaments.
Pakistan is scheduled to play the Boxing Day Test match against Australia at the MCG in 2023 in the next cycle of the World Test Championship. Fox hopes that the stadium will be packed like the T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan in this match of the three-Test series. He said, “The kind of atmosphere that was there in that match between India and Pakistan, I have never seen such atmosphere in MCG before. The noise after each ball was unprecedented. People enjoyed it to the fullest with their families and children.
