New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has financially compensated Pakistan Cricket Board for abandoning their tour of Pakistan.

The amount will not be disclosed to the public.

The Blackcaps abruptly returned home after citing a security threat to their team.

The incident took place on 17th September last year just before the first scheduled ODI between the two sides was to take place in Rawalpindi.

As part of the reported compensation, PCB will make bank from New Zealand’s tour to Pakistan next year.

10 limited over games will be part of the itinerary.

The relationships between NZC and PCB are on the mend as well.

PCB has reportedly decided to accept an invitation by the NZC to participate in the triangular series in Christchurch in October before the T20 World Cup in Australia takes place.

PCB will confirm the details after ironing out the dates with England who are scheduled to arrive in Pakistan for seven T20Is in October.

Following New Zealand’s lead, England also withdrew from sending their men and women teams to Pakistan.

This prompted PCB’s chairman Ramiz Raja to announce that they would ask New Zealand to pay compensation.

New Zealand compensated PCB for financial losses resulting from hotel bookings, security arrangements, marketing, and broadcasting.

New Zealand will tour Pakistan twice in quick succession.

In December 2022/January 2023 they will visit for three ODIs and two Tests while they will make up for the canceled tour in April 2023, where they will play five T20Is and as many ODIs.
