    We have The Ashes and then we have the Indo-Pak encounters the "Friendship Series". If we can market Canada-USA cricket, which is also the oldest international cricket rivalry. We can have an extra episode in the Cricketing fraternity. A new dimension. Some thing very Fresh and sells. Both the nations are rich and can Fetch a lot of ravenue that can be used for development. ICC must start a bylateral Series which includes for the moment Three, Four day games (with first class status), five ODI'S and two Twenty/20 games. Series will be held every 2 years. If we water the plant now it will give us fruit in the future.
