Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja has proposed an annual four-team T20 International series that includes Australia, England, India and Pakistan.

The former Pakistan batsman is set to pitch the concept to the ICC in the coming months, with an emphasis on delivering a product that is sure to excite "fatigued" fans of the game who have been placed in a cycle of viewing bilateral fixtures.

Speaking to ESPNRaja said the new quadrangular structure would be the perfect platform to ensure some of cricket's most historic rivalries continue in blossom.

"My view is that a new structure based on pooling and sharing of income should be formed," he detailed.

"The idea is to register a company that works under the ICC and has a dedicated Chief Executive Officer regulating the entire financial model, with the income divided among all the members.

"There are numerous rivalries like Ashes, Pakistan-India rivalry so it can't go wrong when four T20 sides come and play each other. We need to whet the fans' appetite as they are getting fatigued, and we need to create something outside the FTP."

Raja's proposition isn't the first of its kind, with Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president, opening plans for a tournament between India, Australia, England and a flexible fourth nation three years ago.

The concept has worked across other sporting codes, however the ongoing frictions between India and Pakistan are sure to place some concern on the planning.

Despite the political tensions, Raja believes the concept can put those quarrels in the past as they eye the future of cricket.

"We want to move forward," Raja said.

"Look at the numbers from the T20 World Cup. When Pakistan plays India the world stops to watch and it's a great spectacle. We have to see what fans want and we have do what is right.

"We have to talk about this and elaborate what we want to do. There is a potential discussion in the works that I want to table to the ICC and see how it goes."

Raja is poised to present his concept formally to the ICC in March.
