London:Cricket officials from England and Pakistan have reached an agreement for compensation for Pakistan's forfeiture of last summer's Oval Test match.

Under the agreement, Pakistan will waive their right to a fee for a Twenty20 match as part of their tour of England in summer 2012 to settle the claim.

The Test match was declared forfeit by umpires Darrell Hair and Billy Doctrove after the Pakistan players stayed in their dressing room after the tea interval in protest at a five-run penalty for ball tampering.

The English Cricket Board estimated they lost 800,000 pounds (1.2million euros) after being forced to offer refunds to fans who had bought tickets for the fourth day of the Test, which was abandoned after tea, and for the final day.
