The Pakistan cricket Board (PCB) will earn approximately $5.5 million from their tour to England next year when they play separate series against the hosts and Australia.
The PCB will be paid a participation fee of $3.6 million to play four Tests, five one-dayers and two Twenty20 matches against England and is guaranteed a minimum of $1.9 million earnings from the two Tests and two Twenty20 matches against Australia.
According to a memorandum of understanding between the PCB and the England and Wales Cricket Board, there will be no reciprocal tour by England to Pakistan.
In fact Pakistan's tour to England next year would now be a part of the ICC's 2010 official Future Tours Program and the tour has replaced the scheduled West Indies tour.
But in return, the PCB has conceded in the MoU that England's next visit to Pakistan would be in January-February, 2012 under the current FTP and Pakistan will pay a return visit to England in 2015.
England have also agreed to tour Pakistan in October-November 2015 with Pakistan then paying a return visit to England sometime in 2019.
Pakistan would also be paid 68,635 pounds after the conclusion of their tour to England as settlement of all amounts outstanding from the 2006 Pakistan tour to England.
