Money is not the issue right now: Javed Miandad
INDO-PAK CRICKET RESUMPTION
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Karachi, Aug 14: Pakistan’s former captain and now director-general cricket in the PCB, Javed Miandad has dismissed talks of revenue sharing with India for the coming one-day series, and lauded the BCCI for inviting his nation to play.
“What is most important now is that bilateral cricket ties resume between the two countries. Money is not the issue right now,” Miandad said.
The former batsman who was given additional powers and responsibilities last week by the PCB chairman, insisted that it was useless talking about whether Pakistan will get any financial gains from the coming series in India.
“I don’t think money matters now... what is important is we resume playing against each other,” he added.
Miandad said the Indian board had acted sensibly and shown a big heart by inviting Pakistan to play in India.
“Pakistan and India matches are very important for the sport on a whole because whenever these two teams play against each other people remain at home to watch the matches and the impact is felt worldwide,” Miandad stated.
Former chairman of the board, Ijaz Butt has led a campaign that included some former players wanting the PCB to talk about revenue sharing with India for the series, starting from December 25 that would mark the resumption of bilateral ties between the two countries.
But Miandad insisted that Pakistan cricket will get the benefit of playing India soon.
