A bilateral Test match between India and Pakistan has not been played since 2007.

As a result of the overwhelming success of the T20 World Cup encounter in October, which drew over 90,000 fans, Melbourne Cricket Club CEO Stuart Fox has announced the club’s ambition to host the Test.

After successfully organizing the flagship T20 World Cup showdown between the two sides earlier this year, the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) is interested in hosting a Test match between India and Pakistan, the two teams’ bitter archrivals. The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC), which oversees the MCG, and the Victorian state government have recently approached Cricket Australia (CA) about hosting the high-profile Test. After the remarkable success of the T20 World Cup encounter in October, which drew over 90,000 fans, MCC chief executive Stuart Fox has disclosed his ambitions to host the Test.

“Absolutely. It would be fantastic to see three consecutive (Tests) at the MCG. Each and every time, you’d be able to use it to capacity. The question has been posed, “SEN radio reported on what Fox had to say.

“We have brought this to the attention of Cricket Australia. The (Victorian) government has also done so, I’m sure. Once more, from what I can gather, it’s really complicated, especially when factored in with a very full agenda. That, I believe, is the greater difficulty.

“If we could accommodate fans from all around the world and keep the stadium packed, rather than just those in Australia and Victoria, that would be fantastic. This is why we have made the inquiry.” Fox has stated that moving further with the ICC is the responsibility of CA.

“We can only hope that Cricket Australia keeps pressing the issue with the International Cricket Council. I believe it’d be great to have a full house and that mood and celebrating the game with full houses when you see some of the stadiums around the world empty “His words.

Bilateral Test matches between India and Pakistan have not been played since 2007. Since then, the only times these teams have met again were at ICC or ACC events.

Fox anticipates a sellout crowd for the Boxing Day Test between Australia and Pakistan at the MCG in 2023 as part of a three-match series in the next World Test Championship cycle. The 2023 event is expected to mirror the attendance of the 2021 T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan.

According to Fox, “the India-Pakistan game was something else,” he has never witnessed anything like it at the MCG.

“I have never experienced anything like that atmosphere before. The crowd’s reaction to each home run was incredible, with cheers from adults and children alike.

“Next year, I think it would be a good idea to reach out to the Pakistani community as part of our efforts to be more welcoming and accommodating of various cultures. We’d love to have them since a packed house on day one would be awesome “To which he added.
