The PCB has said it now has "binding agreements" with the BCCI for Pakistan to play India in six series that have been inked into the Future Tours Programme between 2015 and 2023. The fixtures were confirmed at the ICC's annual conference in Melbourne this week.

"India has officially turned the MOUs signed earlier this year with regard to six rubbers between the two nations, four of these to be hosted by the PCB in the UAE or Pakistan with mutual consent, into binding agreements straightaway," PCB said.

The Pakistan board also revealed it had been granted the fourth largest share of ICC revenue - after India, England and Australia - over the next eight years following the restructuring of the revenue distribution model. According to the PCB, the ICC confirmed that its next president would be from Pakistan for a one-year term from June 2015.

"The PCB had organised itself and planned to get maximum advantage for Pakistan cricket from an extremely precarious position," the PCB chairman Najam Sethi said. "We have accomplished all our objectives. And I am positive that in the times to come Pakistan cricket shall greatly benefit from what PCB has been able to obtain for it today."
