Sethi emphasized the role of sponsors in making the PCB and the cricket system stronger, the report said.

Praising the sponsors for the Pakistan- South Africa series, he wished that more such sponsors would come forward for the support of Pakistan cricket as sponsors and claimed that media rights were the major source of income for the PCB, the report added.
