The Indian Cricket Board has come up with a lot of the latest and interesting announcements regarding the much-anticipated ODI World Cup 2023; to be held in India later this year in the month of October and November. Meanwhile, a piece of big news is also making rounds on social media; it is about the amount of tax the Indian Cricket Board will pay to the Indian government on the behalf of cricket’s governing body; the tax amount will be for hosting the 13th edition of the ODI World Cup in India.

The amount of tax the Indian Cricket Board will pay to the government is INR 963cr as per the report by ESPNcricinfo.

“As for the tax exemption issue, the BCCI is expected to update the ICC soon on the exact position of the Indian government. The tax exemption has been part of the host’s agreement the BCCI signed with the ICC in 2014 when three men’s events were awarded to India: the 2016 T20 World Cup, the 2018 Champions Trophy (later changed to the 2021 T20 World Cup, which was moved to the UAE and Oman due to the pandemic) and the 2023 ODI World Cup. As per the agreement, the BCCI was “obligated” to help the ICC (and all its commercial partners involved in the tournament) secure tax waivers,” read a report in ESPNcricinfo.

Although a section of the Indian cricket fans took it as an opportunity to troll the Pakistan cricket board and Pakistanis, out of nowhere. They took to Twitter to come up with a bunch of hilarious responses and reactions to mock Pakistan’s economy with the heavy amount of tax which to be paid by the Indian Cricket Board.
