Pakistani Players Blank Cheque: The flurry of ICC T20 World Cup 2021 has started, as teams have started reaching UAE and Oman for this mega event.

Pakistani Players Blank Cheque
Yes, we are talking about India vs Pakistan match to be held at Dubai ground on October 24. The head of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Rameez Raja, has claimed that Pakistan’s team defeats India in the T20 World Cup. If so, then the PCB will get a blank check from an investor.
PCB chairman Rameez Raja said that he was approached by an investor who had promised him that if Pakistan could register their first win over India in the upcoming T20 World Cup match, the board would get a blank check from that investor. Cricket Pakistan quoted Rameez Raja as saying, “PCB runs on 50 per cent of ICC funding. Ninety per cent of ICC funding comes from India. If India stops funding the ICC, I am afraid that the PCB may collapse because PCB gives zero per cent funding to ICC.
He further said, “I am committed to making Pakistan cricket strong. A strong investor told me that a blank check is ready for the PCB if Pakistan beat India in the upcoming T20 World Cup.” International cricket did not occur in Pakistan for many years, but the PCB had high hopes from the scheduled series against New Zealand and England. However, the board has dealt a blow with both the teams withdrawing from their respective tours. Security reasons were cited behind this.
