PCB hoping to induce England, Australia to tour Pakistan

ESPNCRICINFO, LAHORE

 

The Pakistan Cricket Board has scheduled a fresh round of talks with officials from Cricket Australia and England and Wales Cricket Board after the World Cup to discuss the resumption of international cricket in the country.

The board is also set to officially discuss Sri Lanka's and Bangladesh's scheduled visits to the country as per the FTP. The discussions between the PCB and officials at SLC and BCB is expected to take place in Singapore on May 26 during the sidelines of an Asian Cricket Council meeting.

With their international broadcasting rights ending next year, the PCB has set sights on reviving international cricket in the country, with Australia and England scheduled to visit in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

"Tom Harrison, ECB's chief executive is coming to Pakistan," Wasim Khan, PCB's managing director, told ESPNcricinfo. "He is excited to come in two to three months (after World Cup) and he wants to stay and experience living in the country. Because we are going to host them in 2021-22 and we are opening our conversation with them from now because it is such a matter which takes time considering they haven't toured Pakistan in 13 to 14 years.

"But they are very positive about touring Pakistan which is good for us. He will come to look at our stadiums and will see our security plans. Kevin Roberts, Cricket Australia chief executive, is also expected to visit. So it's about relation building and it's very encouraging that they are making efforts to come to us."

Pakistan's five-year broadcasting deal, which ends next year, suffered a major blow during the ongoing cycle when India did not fulfill their commitments of two series. The losses were valued over USD 70 million. With the new broadcasting cycle, PCB are looking to secure a hike in the value of Pakistan cricket's international broadcasting rights. They had sold their PSL three-year broadcast rights last year for approximately USD 36 million.
