With the revival of cricketing ties with India after a gap of almost five years, the Pakistan and Indian cricket boards are mulling an "Ashes" like series between the two countries to take forward bilateral sporting relations

“We have floated a proposal for an Ashes-like series between India and Pakistan with the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India). With the current series, the ice has been melted and we need to take the relationship further,” Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf told mediapersons here.

Ashraf said if the “India-Pakistan Ashes” becomes a reality, cricket-loving people of the two nations will be benefited and bilateral relations will also improve.The bilateral Test match series between Australia and England is traditionally known as the Ashes.
