The England and Wales Cricket Board have made a proposal to the Pakistan Cricket Board to be a neutral venue for India vs Pakistan Tests, as first reported by The Telegraph. ECB’s deputy chair Martin Barlow, who has been in Pakistan for England’s ongoing seven-match T20I series, is said to have put forward the idea to his Pakistani counterpart Ramiz Raja during the tour.
