Islamabad: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja believes that India's PM Narendra Modi may have ruined PCB on the day he wants. Ramiz Raja says Pakistan Cricket Board runs with 50 per cent ICC funding and 90 per cent of funding to ICC comes from the Indian market. At the same time, Ramiz Raja said that if Pakistan beat India in the T20 World Cup, an investor is ready to give a blank cheque to the PCB.
Ramiz Raja said in the Senate Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) meeting, "The Pakistan Cricket Board runs 50 per cent on ICC funding and ICC funding is that they organize tournaments and the money that comes from it is their own. Members distribute across boards and 90% of that ICC funding comes from the Indian market. In a way, India's money is running Pakistan cricket. If tomorrow the Indian PM thinks that we will not give funding to Pakistan, the PCB can also be ravished.''

The T20 World Cup match between Pakistan and India is scheduled to be played on October 24. India and Pakistan do not play bilateral series, so both teams participate in just ICC events. The last match between India and Pakistan was played during the 2019 World Cup. Pakistan has never won the match in World Cups against India.
