Pakistan will not get more than Rs 105-110 crore as hosting fees and compensation from the International Cricket Council under the final settlement of the 2011 World Cup dispute.
Well-placed sources in the PCB told PTI on Monday that the figures ranging between 125-150 crore rupees and even more being spoken off by PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt were not correct or factual.
"The truth is that after the final settlement over Pakistan's share of World Cup matches, Pakistan will get a maximum amount of 110 crore rupees and this includes the hosting fees of $10.5 million," one source said.
He said Pakistan would like all other nations also be paid their share of the revenue from the World Cup by the ICC after the tournament is over. "This amount could be anything between $ 6 to 7 million dollars," he said.
The source made it clear that the final settlement with the ICC was a proper document and there was no mention in it about the ICC being responsible for convincing India to play a bilateral series with Pakistan at any neutral venue.
"That is just a discussion held between Butt and Morgan," the source added.
