Default Effects of the PCB-BCB beef.

Regardless of who started it (PCB by attempting to blackmail Lotus, and Lotus for accepting it with open arms), how does this effect each side. Some Pak fans and a few on BC think the negative effects affect BCB more. Lets count them.

BCB

- misses PAK contracted players for all domestic leagues
- possible slight loss of revenue as a result
- no bilateral series between PAK and BD

PCB

- faces possible player discontent over lost incomes
- PSL cannot afford to fail otherwise PCB will come under fire
- exposed for trying to pressure/bully/force BD to tour when they didn't want to
- exposed for being petty with tit for tat reactions
- exposed for lying by saying they were "unaware" of BCB's NOC request
- still not any closer to reviving international cricket
- embarassment of being led on by a "minnow" board

Unless, I missed anything, it seems PCB came away with not only a bloody nose but a few broken bones as well.
