New Zealand Pays Compensation To Pcb

New Zealand pays compensation to PCB

The New Zealand Cricket Board has paid a US dollar compensation to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for abruptly canceling a tour of Pakistan in September last year.

The New Zealand Cricket Board admitted its mistake and paid compensation to the PCB, but did not provide details of the amount paid.

In addition to compensating the PCB, the New Zealand Cricket Board has agreed to play five additional T20s and five ODIs scheduled for May next year.

These 10 white ball matches for New Zealand are in addition to two Tests and three ICC Super League ODI matches to be played in December and January.

It may be recalled that the New Zealand team had canceled its tour a few hours before the first match of the series in Rawalpindi in September last year due to security concerns and left Pakistan.

A statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said, “The New Zealand Cricket Board has informed us that it has received a security alert and has decided to postpone the series unilaterally.”
