PCB eyes double revenue amid new ICC model concerns


LAHORE: After the recent International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings in Durban, South Africa discussing the new ICC Financial and Distribution Model for 2024-27, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) claims it has expressed its “dissent” over lack of data behind the new financial model and its distribution process.

“Despite of PCB’s proposal to defer the decision on the model, it was passed with the majority members’ votes,” according to a PCB press release.

On the other hand, the board will receive more than double the revenue compared to the last cycle “due to the Pakistan cricket team’s performance in men’s ICC events and in bilateral cricket, the PCB’s own huge fan-base, which leads to significant commercial value, the PCB was ranked amongst the top-four nations in this Model,” the handout further reads.

A meeting was also held to finalise the schedule of the Asia Cup 2023, with the opening match set to take place in Pakistan. PCB claims the finalised schedule will likely be announced this week.
