Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Rameez Raja has said that if Pakistan beats India in the ICC T20 World Cup, the team led by Babar Azam will get a blank cheque. Apart from this, Rameez Raja said that 90 percent of the funding to the International Cricket Council (ICC) comes from India. Pakistan has never been able to beat India in any World Cup match till date. There is no bilateral series played between India and Pakistan and both the teams only face each other in ICC events.
Rameez Raja told the Senate Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) meeting, “An investor has told me that a blank check has been kept ready for the PCB if Pakistan beat India in the T20 World Cup.” ‘ The PCB is facing a similar financial crisis. Last month, the New Zealand team went on a tour of Pakistan, but before the start of the series, the tour was canceled citing security and returned. After this, England also canceled the tour of Pakistan citing Kovid-19 restrictions.
Rameez Raja said, ‘If our cricket economy was strong, then teams like England and New Zealand would not have been able to use us and throw them in the dustbin. Best cricket team and best cricket economy are two big challenges. India won the 2007 T20 World Cup title and finished as runners-up in 2014. The ICC T20 World Cup is to be played from October 17. Its final match will be played on 14 November.
