BCB agrees to pay PCB for postponing tours

LAHORE: Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) agreed to pay compensation to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for postponing two tours to Pakistan in 2012, according to BCB president Nazmul Hassan.

Since the beginning of the year, the two boards have made claims and counter-claims on whether the tour is a home series for Pakistan or Bangladesh. In March, the Pakistan government cleared the tour.

Hassan, in a press conference at his residence on Friday, said that the BCB wants to end the matter by paying Pakistan their due for missing the two tours. He said the amount could be between $100,000 and $300,000.

“We have no more conditions with PCB,” Hassan said. “They first demanded 50% revenue and then said this is their home series. I told them this is our home series. They kept repeating that Bangladesh didn’t tour Pakistan. I replied that I don’t like listening to this in every meeting.”

Pakistan are expected to arrive on April 13 though the schedule for the tour had not been announced until April 3.
