ECB offer to Pakistan a possible 30 million Dollars
LAHORE, March 27: The England and Wales Cricket Board has come forward to host the postponed Australia-Pakistan Test series. If the Pakistan Cricket Board accepts the offer to play Australia in England in July, two of the three Test matches would be held in London and one in another city.
The Dawn reported that the ECB had verbally offered $10 million to the PCB for each Test match. The PCB earlier ruled out the chances of holding the series at any neutral venue. But now the board chairman, Mr Nasim Ashraf, has informed members of the governing board of the offer. The members have asked him to wait till he receives a written offer from the ECB, which is expected anytime.
The ECB’s helping hand can assist the Pakistan board in offsetting huge losses, which were incurred owing to the late withdrawal of Australia from the March-April tour for security reasons.
