    No cricket with India costs Pakistan board Rs 482 crores

    Blaming it on lack of bilateral series with India, the Pakistan Cricket Board claims to have lost approximately USD 80 million (Approx. Rs 482 crore) in its broadcasting deal with the Dubai-based Ten Sports that ended last month.

    A senior official of the board told PTI that since Pakistan didn't host any home series against India in the four-year broadcasting deal, it lost out on an estimated USD 80 million from its total deal of USD 135 million (approx. 814 crore)."In our agreement with the broadcasters there was a clear clause that we had to play at least two home series with India in a four year cycle and it would have fetched us an estimated USD 80 to 85 million of the total deal of USD 135 million," the official explained."But unfortunately since we have not had any bilateral ties with India at home in this four-year cycle it has cost us a lot revenues," he said.

    The official said the tough part was that when the PCB invites bids for a new four-year deal in September, it would face the same problems as in the previous deal."Again broadcasters will want to have a escape clause if we don't play India in a home series and it will cost us estimated revenues."

    The official explained that broadcasters had no problems in Pakistan hosting its home series against India at a neutral venue because of teams' refusal to come here after the2009 Lahore terror attack on the Sri Lankan players."The issue is that the BCCI is not willing to even play at neutral venues since the Mumbai terror attacks. Political and other relations with India have also badly affected our cricket ties and our revenues," he said.

    Pakistan toured India in December for a short one-day series, the first bilateral series between the two countries since 2007.But since 2008, India has refused to play Pakistan or even in Pakistan and also cancelled a full tour in early 2009.

    "To date we have still not got any compensation for that cancelled series from the Indians," the official said.He said until recently, the PCB had made efforts to convince the Indians to give Pakistan a home series even if it had to be played in India but met with no success although both teams had windows in August.

    We should always remember how satta and black money flows whenever there is India-Pakistan match.

    Dawood and Paki Terrorist Inc's are the big beneficiary in these matches.

    I am pro-legalizing drugs, prostitution. In fact drugs like Marijuana are semi-legal in India, and that's why we don't have a drug epidemic here.
    Prostitution was legalized by Chanakya.

    Crime ? how can you legalize something which is already legal ? You don't make sense.

    Legalizing Tobacco, and Alcohol has made a killing for the Govt.

    Seems like you are ignoring drug epidemic in Punjab which is your state.The youth is either destroyed or fled away in foreign countries or jobless criminals.

    1. My State is Delhi.
    2. What's the reason for Drug "Epidemic" ?
    3. How do you conflate foreign migration with drugs and allege that all of Punjab's youth are jobless criminals or drug addicts. This is facetious.

    In any case what we know is that criminalizing or prohibition doesn't work. India is one of the biggest betting markets in the world. People are not going to change, its better to legalize it and let the Govt. regulate it and profit from it.

    Legalizing Betting would prevent all of that. It would prevent people below the age of 18 to bet for eg,
    Basically people who want to bet will find a way. Give them proper channels, protect everyone and profit. Tax the hell out of betting income.

    482 crores in nothing for PCB. In the absence of international cricket. PCB can rent all cricket stadium in Pakistan for marriages and private parties
