ASIA CUP

Pakistan Cricket Board wants ACC to pay them back for the disastrous Asia Cup.

India vs Pakistan

In the match between the BCCI and the PCB, the former is the loser. India’s refusal to come to Pakistan for the Asia Cup 2023 presented a logistical nightmare for the cash-strapped Pakistan Cricket Board. Following much back and forth, Pakistan only get four matches by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). With the remaining matches happening in Sri Lanka. In addition to the additional costs of travel, PCB has requested compensation from the ACC for the losses incurred.

PCB demands compensation from ACC for Asia Cup

Despite Pakistan’s original hosting rights, PCB was force to accept a hybrid model due to BCCI’s rejection. Additionally, PCB has to pay Sri Lanka $2,069,885, of which 75% was given in advance as the original host. Although the exact amount they are requesting from the ACC is unknown, it is most likely to cover the costs associated with hosting Sri Lanka as well as the Pakistan Cricket Team’s travel expenses.

The PCB had to pay $281,700 in advance for a chartered flight for Pakistani players to Sri Lanka because they were already short on funds.

Pakistani players had to fly to Sri Lanka, then back home before making the trip back to the island nation after participating in the inaugural match in Multan. PCB had further costs as a result of that.

According to Cricket Pakistan, the Asia Cup 2023 will likely cost a total of $40 million. It’s unclear, though, how much money the Pakistan Cricket Board is requesting.

The management committee of PCB will get together once more this week to determine the amount of compensation. On the other hand, the additional costs for Multan may be the source of conflict between Pakistan board and ACC. Four of the Asia Cup 2023 matches were held in Lahore, but Pakistan also invited Multan .
