Chandigarh:The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that it is yet to take any decision on introducing a Kapil-Imran trophy for the Indo-Pak series.

In reply to such a proposal from Dronacharya coach Desh Prem Azad, PCB general manager - cricket operation, Zakir Khan has informed Azad that the PCB and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had not taken any decision on the introduction of the Kapil-Imran trophy.

"Reports appearing in the media are apparently based on speculations," Khan said in his communication to Azad, also the president of the Dronacharya Sports Promoters Association.

Thanking the PCB for acknowledging his proposal, Azad, coach of Kapil Dev, said he had also sent this proposal to the BCCI president, Jagmohan Dalmiya.

Azad said he was expecting the BCCI to take up his proposal with their counterparts in Pakistan.

"I am not sure whether Dalmiya has discussed my proposal with the PCB officials or not. So far, I have not received any communication from the BCCI," he said.

"I wonder why my suggestion is not feasible. In the recently concluded cricket series between India and Australia, the winner was awarded the Border-Gavaskar trophy named after former skippers Sunil Gavaskar and Allan Border."

The much respected coach is still hopeful that the two Boards would agree to introduce the Kapil-Imran trophy as the two stalwarts have a very good following in India and Pakistan and have contributed a lot for the development of the game.
