KARACHI: New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has paid financial loss to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for ending their tour at eleventh hour last year in September. 

New Zealand team reached Rawalpindi to play three ODIs and five T20Is. However, they cancelled the tour suddenly just before the start of first ODI, citing security threats to their players. 

PCB chairman Ramiz Raja took this matter in the ICC and put a strong case in front of NZC after their government refused to share the details of security threats. 

Now, according to Cricket Pakistan, NZC has paid compensation to PCB for financial loss, including hotel bookings, security, marketing, broadcast, etc.

This development was learnt after NZC sent a formal invitation to the PCB for playing in a tri-nation T20I series with Bangladesh as third team before T20 World Cup in Australia this year. 

Reportedly, PCB hasn't responded to the invitation as they are waiting for England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB)'s schedule of their tour to Pakistan for playing seven T20Is in late September and early October this year.
