Karachi: Former Pakistan batsman Ramiz Raja reckons that holding a Test series against India should be one of the priorities of the new Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Zaka Ashraf.

“I think he [Zaka Ashraf] has made just the right start, since this series benefits both countries and benefits cricket. There is no bigger series than India-Pakistan,” Raja told a website.

He further said that the International Cricket Council (ICC) should anoint India-Pakistan Test series as ‘icon’ series.

“Australia-England, Australia-South Africa, India-Pakistan and possibly Australia-India should be icon series as well. The ICC should announce them as such, and then make sure that when these series are taking place, not many other matches are taking place at the same time,” Raja said.
