Karachi: The PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan yesterday said he would request the ICC to set up a special fund for Pakistan cricket to compensate for the heavy revenue losses it bears due to the absence of international cricket in the country.
With no international cricket team touring Pakistan since March 2009 when militants attacked the Sri Lankan team in Lahore, Shaharyar said the Pakistan Cricket Board had suffered losses in millions of dollars of revenues.
"We want to use this special fund to develop and promote cricket in Pakistan," Shaharyar, who is scheduled to represent Pakistan at the annual ICC meetings from June 27 in Edinburgh, told PTI prior to his departure for London.
