The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja has claimed to have earned a profit of two billion rupees from the historic Australia tour of Pakistan. He expressed his happiness about the outcome and said this is a positive sign for cricket in the sub-continent country.
Australia played in Pakistan after 24 years and competed in three Tests and the same number of ODIs apart from a one-off T20I. The Test series was won by Australia with a margin of 1-0, while the one-day internationals went in favor of Pakistan. They won two matches while the Aaron Finch-led team won one.
The world champions also defeated the Men in Green in the only T20I.
“From the commercial point of view, we have broken all the records. I think we will generate a profit of around two billion rupees from the recently concluded tour,” said Raja.
Ramiz admitted that Pakistan have taken steps in the right direction, but the country is still lagging in cricket infrastructure.
“We have taken big strides, but the infrastructure needs to be looked after in the country. We need to focus on coaching, training, and education of youngsters,” he added.
