Karachi: June 26, 2014

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is now in a position to have a major say in the affairs of international cricket after securing considerable concessions from the ‘Big Three’ of India, Australia, and England in the backdrop of the ICC’s Annual Conference in Melbourne, Australia.

According to Dawn News, Pakistan will receive the most in terms of percentage of revenue after the Big Three, from the ICC in the next eight years from broadcasting and other rights on ICC fixtures, effectively now making them part of a ‘Big Four’, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said in a press release.

According to the PCB, India has officially turned the MoUs signed earlier this year with regard to six series between the two nations, four of these to be hosted by the PCB in the UAE or Pakistan with mutual consent, into binding agreements straightaway. The six tours are now part of the Future Tours Programme and are to be played from 2015 to 2023.

Another major ‘achievement’, as the PCB puts it, is ICC confirming that the president of the global body will be from Pakistan with effect from June 2015. The agreements have been made possible because of Pakistan’s non-opposition to India’s N Srinivasan being elected as the new chairman of the ICC, the paper quoted PCB sources, as saying on condition of anonymity.
