Pakistan cricket chiefs yesterday dismissed reports they had sought a share of revenues from their planned tour of India later this year — the arch rivals’ first series in five years.
The money had not been a consideration, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) spokesman Nadeem Sarwar told AFP.
“Pakistan’s first priority was to revive ties with India. The revenue-sharing thing never came under discussion,” said Sarwar.
Tour revenues normally go to the host nation, but reports suggested PCB wanted to split the money.
