Ramiz Raja proposed for the super series back in January 2022. Cricket Australia agrees to host the four-nation series. The plans also call for the ICC to run the event. Though this specific plan seems unlikely to become reality. However, at least not in its current formulation that would require India and Pakistan to play regularly. It does appear to have prompted greater support for the idea that members be able to organize their own triangular tournaments.

As per ICC regulations any tournament involving "the National Representative Teams of more than three National Cricket Federations" is deemed to mean an ICC event. It means that it is run by the ICC and sold commercially as an ICC event. Meanwhile, the proceeds divides among the members.

The Chief Executives' Committee (CEC) meeting on Friday in Dubai saw CEOs advocating the idea of members being able to organize their own triangular events. According to two officials aware of developments at the meeting, a number of boards backed the idea. Meanwhile, it is believed that the cricket boards of England (ECB), Australia (CA), West Indies (CWI), and Pakistan (PCB) were in favor. One official said Tom Harrison, the ECB's CEO, brought up the idea at the meeting.

It isn't clear what the BCCI's stance was at the CEC. The indications are that they are not in direct opposition. Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president, was actually the first to propose such a four-nation Super Series back in December 2019.

How far the idea goes depends on the level of support among the CEC. It is thought a clear majority will need to agree, before putting a proposal forward to the Board.

The question of triangular events would have come up at the board meeting in any case because Ramiz was always going to make his presence there. But that presentation now may span out into a wider discussion.
