India controls world cricket: PM Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: The Indian cricket board is the richest cricket board in the world right now and controls world cricket, said Prime Minister Imran Khan in an interview to the Middle East Eye.

The premier was asked to comment on the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) decision to pull out of the Pakistan tour, citing its players’ well-being.

The prime minister said that he had seen the evolution of Pakistan-England cricket ties over the years.

“I think that there is still this feeling in England that they do a great favour to play with countries like Pakistan,” he added. “One of the reasons is that, obviously, the money.”

The prime minister said that the BCCI is the richest cricket board in the world, adding that no other country would dare to do to India what England had done to Pakistan.

“Money is a big player now,” he said.

“For the players, as well as for the cricket boards. The money lies in India, so basically, India controls world cricket now.

“I mean, they do, whatever they say goes. No one would dare do that to India because they know that the sums involved, India can sort of produce much more money,” he added.

“I think England let itself down,” he added.
