Melbourne, December 29
The Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) has expressed interest in hosting a Test match between arch-rivals India and Pakistan after successfully organising the marquee T20 World Cup clash between the two sides earlier this year.
The MCC, which manages the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and the Victoria government have recently enquired with Cricket Australia (CA) about the possibility of hosting the high-profile Test.
MCC chief executive Stuart Fox has revealed his intentions to host the Test following the tremendous success of the T20 World Cup clash in October, which was attended by over 90,000 spectators.
“Absolutely. Three (Tests) in a row would be lovely at the MCG. You’d fill it every time. We have asked,” Fox was quoted as saying by SEN radio.
