PCB Gets Compensation From New Zealand for Canceled Tour

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been compensated by New Zealand Cricket (NZC) for canceling their tour to Pakistan in September last year owing to a “security concern” that proved to be false.

The Blackcaps were supposed to play a white-ball series in Pakistan, but they abruptly canceled the tour just before the first of three one-day internationals, resulting in millions of dollars in damages.

The compensation sum has not been announced by any cricket board, but the PCB will profit handsomely from New Zealand’s tour to Pakistan, which will comprise five one-day internationals and the same number of T20 internationals.

Both boards’ relationships have improved, and PCB is poised to send the Men in Green to New Zealand for a triangular series in October before the T20 World Cup in Australia.

However, once the dates for England’s fixtures are set, the cricket board will confirm the tour to New Zealand. In October, the Eoin Morgan-led squad will go to Pakistan for seven T20Is.

Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, had promised to seek compensation from New Zealand Cricket (NZC) for the financial damage the board sustained as a result of the incident.

Meanwhile, the New Zealand board has compensated financial losses in areas such as hotel bookings, security, marketing, and television, among others.

In December 2022/January 2023, New Zealand will tour Pakistan for three One-Day Internationals and two Tests, making up for the canceled tour in April 2023, when they will play five T20Is and as many ODIs.
