ISLAMABAD: (Web Desk) Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja has hinted at a “good news” in the coming week, saying the New Zealand cricket board might reschedule its Pakistan tour.
Ramiz Raja, who was briefing the Senate committee, said that the New Zealand cricket board was “now rescheduling the tour” after being pressured by Pakistan.
Raja added that “we should have no problem” if New Zealand were ready to play according to Pakistan’s conditions.
He also informed the committee that Pakistan’s cricket affairs were managed through 50 percent funding from the International Cricket Council (ICC), while 90pc of the ICC funding was provided by India.
The New Zealand cricket team had arrived in Pakistan on September 11 for the first time in 18 years to play three ODIs and five Twenty20 Internationals.
The Kiwis on the very next day on Sep 17 canceled the tour due to unconfirmed security issues. They had cited a ‘security threat’ as the reason without divulging any further information. The tour cancellation was followed by England also deferring their tour.
