Former PCB Chairman Believes BCCI Owes Pakistan Financial Compensation

By Community | July 25, 2012

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) former Chairman, health Ijaz Butt believes Pakistan should ask the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) to compensate it financially for the cancelled series in 2009.

Butt said: “It is a good thing that finally the Board of Control for Cricket in India has invited Pakistan to play a short series this year in India. But my concern is, online the PCB needs to gain something more out of the series than the resumption of ties.”

The PCB has already accepted the invitation from the BCCI to tour India in December to play three-match One-Day International series and two Twenty20 matches.

A PCB spokesperson said that Pakistan would not discuss “sharing of revenue generation for the series as its only interest was to see bilateral cricket ties revived.”{jcomments on}
