The PCB has announced that it has signed a deal for holding six cricket series with India over the next eight years. India and Pakistan have not been involved in bilateral series in the last few years. Also, no international team has visited Pakistan over the last few years after the Sri Lankan team bus was attacked by terrorists. The series will be held between 2015 and 2022, as per a legal binding agreement signed by the two boards. Four of the six series will be hosted by Pakistan in UAE/Pakistan, while the other two will be hosted by India. The PCB had been resisting more power in the ICC for India, England and Australia and perhaps these series are a part of the compromise reached.

A PCB statement said, “A major achievement for PCB as ICC agreed on Thursday to grant Pakistan the fourth rank after the ‘Big Three’ in terms of the percentage of revenue to be received from the ICC in the next eight years from broadcasting and other rights on ICC fixtures. It is a really big achievement”
