LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Sharayar Khan said that the board might ask for compensation before touring Bangladesh later this year.

The comments came after news emerged that Bangladesh have refused to tour Pakistan for proposed two T20I series.

Shaharyar, while talking to the media on Monday, said that the two board’s representative will meet in Dubai ahead of the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting, where the board might ask for financial compensation ahead of the Men in Green’s tour of Bangladesh in July.

“Since we’ve already toured Bangladesh, and they refused to tour Pakistan in 2015 on security grounds, we might ask for compensation if they want us to tour again,” said Shaharyar .

    They made millions off of the PSL and with the final being played in Pakistan, the renewed interest in the sport has resulted in merchandise sales skyrocketing, far more sponsors showing interest than ever before and a lot more leagues to come. In other words, the Pakistani market is big enough to sustain its expenses and grow without other south Asian countries. The PCB should share with the people this good news and tell everyone how much they had earned. Even if they don’t share numbers, at least go public to say something like “we have made some real good money”. This has a positive impact on the consumer and attracts them to ‘consume’ even more. No one wants to become a fan of a poor or backwards league. Its like watching a league in Lyari vs. a league in Europe. Who would you rather follow and buy jerseys of? Recommend
