The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have offered to host Bangladesh in the United Arab Emirates in April-May this year.

Pakistan are scheduled to travel to Bangladesh during that time, but since the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) do not want to give them 50 per cent of the series revenue, the PCB are hoping to convince the BCB to send the national team to the United Arab Emirates.

“Our contention is simple,” Najam Sethi, the head of the PCB’s Executive Committee, said. “They owe us a home series as they were scheduled to tour Pakistan in 2012 and didn’t come. We on other hand toured Bangladesh in 2011.

“We have now told them that it is our turn to host a series and if they want us to tour, then the Bangladesh board must share 50 per cent revenues with us or else we have even offered to host them in the UAE.”

“They pulled out of a confirmed tour in 2012 and we suffered loss in revenues. We are just saying that this series is now our home series and if they want to host it, they must share the revenues.”
