Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is facing problems in selling the television rights of its forthcoming 'home' series against Australia and New Zealand in the United Arab Emirates for a reasonable amount.

"The PCB until now has got just one broadcaster interested in buying television rights of both series but he has offered just around USD 5.5 million which is well below the reserve price set by the board," the source said.
