Default India-Pak Series Starting to lose interest

The Fan's interest in India-Pakistan Cricket sereis is found to have lost a lot of interest because it has been occuring too frequently (twice already within last 6 monthes). Earlier, these two countries had decided to play some extra series in addition to the ICC's FTP schedule... as they expected to have big financial success from it. But figures show that the very recnet IND-PAK series earned 22 crore Rupees wheras the immediate earlier one earned 30 crore Rupees. BCCI & Pak Cricket board are now fearing that playing these series too often may cause big financial losses and lack of interest in future series. It may even affect the Asia Cup matches in future between Ind & Pak.

I dont think so. Most people are interested in seeing Ashes and India Pakistan matches. Well they dont play every month. Just plays in a year or twice a year or something..

While everyone is 'agreeing/disagreeing with Ahmed'.... let me clear the air before things get complicated..

What I posted wasn't really my observation.. rather it is actually a 'News'(the source is mentioned). Basically I translated everything they said in the news... including the fear of the IND-PAK cricket boards about coming ICC Trophy or Asia Cup IND-PAK matches.

BTW.... here's wht I think about it:
the decision by the India and PAK cricket boards to play series more often(to earn some extra cash too I suppose) has a chance to turn out like the story... of the greedy farmer who had a Duck that gave one Golden Egg everyday and the Farmer rather decided to slaughter the Duck and and have it all together.
