$5000 fee cost Pakistan the Sydney Test

PCB's refusal to pay Steve Rixon $ 5000 as fees cost them the Second Test against Australia at Sydney.

Steve Rixon claims Geoff Lawson contacted him in 2008 to correct the flaws in Kamran Akmal's glove work.Unfortunately, PCB refused to pay Steve Rixon $ 5000 as fees.
"Brad was great and if Kamran takes one of those four dropped catches, it's all over - Pakistan win the Test.
I wasn't asking for much, it was petty, but for whatever reason the PCB didn't want a bar of it. They deserve everything they get."
Now why did PCB refuse Rixon's services? Was it because the fee was steep or did they doubt Rixon's competence?

However, it seems churlish on the part of Rixon to claim 'they deserves everything they get'.
