Ramiz Raja, Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has stated that the just finished Australian tour of Pakistan brought in record-breaking revenue for the PCB. According to Ramiz, the tour was a success not just in terms of cricket, but also in terms of business, with the PCB making a profit of up to Rs. 2 billion.
The 59-year-old said that Pakistan’s recent successes, which included a historic triumph over arch-rival India in the 2021 T20 World Cup, revived the country’s supporters’ fervour, resulting in sold-out stadiums throughout Australia’s visit to the country.
“With recent strong results, our cricket team has instilled trust in the public, propelling us to new heights on a commercial level.” Only Australia’s home tour made a two-billion-dollar profit. As a result, it’s a good indicator for us moving forward,” Ramiz said.
Despite the tour’s great success, former national team captain feels there is still more work to be done. He stated that the PCB’s goal is to strengthen the country’s cricket facilities and pitches.
He stated that Pakistan’s next blockbuster season is crucial for the country, and that PCB must work tirelessly to ensure that the country’s infrastructure is up to par. This year, Pakistan will host the West Indies, England, and New Zealand, as the Men in Green prepare for their first real home season in a decade.
