Najam Sethi spoke about Big 3 support

Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi addressed press conference at Qadafi stadium, Lahore. The main reason he went out there to support Big 3 is to save Pakistan from isolation. Pakistan is the last full member to support Big Three and they haven't got long term broadcasting deal since Jul 2013. According to Sethi, this deal will bring Rs. 30 billion to Pakistan that can be spend on progress of game in country.

Sethi said, "If we don't play big teams we could be bankrupt in the next two years so we have to stay in line and play our home series with India. Because our infrastructure is mainly run with the money generated playing international cricket, it's very important to play India because it generate major chunk of money. We have to run our cricket and we can't sit out being isolated. Hence we had to go with them but we signed with all legal binding documents and the details of all fixtures will be released soon."

Apart from the broadcasting rights we will be getting a share of ICC tournament, which has been increased from 0.3 to 1.3 per cent. So at the end of the day we have good news for our cricket."
