The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is all set to get richer by around USD 16 million from the 2011 World Cup earnings without even hosting a single match of the tournament.
According to a source close to the World Cup secretariat, Pakistan would get a total package of around USD 16 million from the World Cup under the compensation package worked out between the ICC and PCB.
“The total package includes hosting fees and other benefits,” the source told PTI.
He said that the ICC had already released around USD 10.5 million to the PCB soon after the conclusion of the tournament in April.
“The rest of the amount is also due to be paid to the PCB soon,” he said.
