Karachi : The PCB is not willing to bear the expenses of hosting another home series in the United Arab Emirates and wants Sri Lanka Cricket to share the financial burden if it decides not to tour Pakistan for the two-Test rubber in December.
After successfully hosting Sri Lanka for a limited over series in Karachi and Lahore in September-October, the Pakistan Cricket Board has been pushing the Sri Lankans to send their team for the two ICC Championship test matches as well in December.
"PCB Chairman, Ehsan Mani, and CEO, Wasim Khan who are in Dubai for the ICC board meetings have apparently conveyed to Sri Lankan officials that if they (SL) insist on playing the test series in UAE, they should bear the expenses," a reliable source said.
"The PCB has decided to take a stance that even after convincing the ICC and Sri Lankan board officials that they can properly manage all security arrangements in Pakistan, if the Sri Lankan board still insists on having the series in UAE it will have to pay or share the expenses of hosting the series," the source said.
