    ECB offers to host Pakistan-Australia Test series

    http://www.dawn.com/2008/03/27/spt4.htm

    LAHORE, March 26: The England and Wales Cricket Board has offered the PCB to play its recently postponed home series against Australia in England sometime in July.

    Though the PCB has already ruled out the chances of holding the series at any neutral venue, board’s chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf informed the members of the Governing Board about the offer.

    The members have asked the PCB chairman to wait till he received a written offer from the ECB which is expected anytime now.

    It is learnt the ECB had verbally offered $10 million to PCB for each Test match.

    According to the offer, two of the three Test matches will be played inside London and one in another city.

    In accepting the offer from ECB, the PCB will have to take a u-turn on its early policies of refusing the proposal of Cricket Australia (CA) of holding the series at any neutral venue.

    However, it will help the board to recover huge losses incurred due to the late withdrawal of Ricky Ponting’s men from the March-April tour over security reasons.

    Sounds ok to me.I think if we have a fit pace attack then i believe we could trouble Aus in english conditions.

    Well there's very interesting.

    I touched on this matter in the previous thread about said Test series, and I thought there was no way on Earth the ECB would want another international contest during the English season.

    Very surprised indeed that they do, and if they think it could work-out well for cricket over here I'd be all for it and it'd be a bit of a shame if Pakistan dismissed it out-of-hand.

    That is very nice of ECB to offer. Hopefully, it'll work out. I'm still very disappointed in CA, but if the tour moves ahead at least, that'll be good.

    I see what you mean, and a big part of me agrees, but another part want the PCB to tell CA to shove it.

    I'd imagine it would be Birmingham or Leeds given the high population of Pakistanis in both cities. Can't see it happening though, English conditions would surely suit Australia more.

    Reckon they (PCB) will tell Cricket Australia and the ECB to put it where the sun don't shine.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    You would think that Pakistan would experience something of a 'homelike' support also.

    Lords, Edgbaston and Headingley would make more sense.

    Definitely more Pakistani supporters in the Greater Manchester area. Not to mention the rest of Lancs.
