PCB has claimed $60 million compensation against BCCI for not honoring the memorandum of understanding which requires the two countries to play 5 bilateral series in an eight years cycle between 2015 to 2018. The ICC has constituted three members dispute resolution committee for hearing this claim.
The hearing on behalf of this claim will take place at the ICC headquarters in Dubai between 1 October 2018 to 3 October 2018.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that BCCI didn’t honor the future tour and program (FTP) commitment which also desired them to play at least two away series against Pakistan.
A senior BCCI official told PTI on Wednesday that their contention is pretty simple. They will play Pakistan in ICC or multinational tournaments such as the World Cup, Asia Cup etc but can’t engage in bilateral series until they get a go-ahead from the Indian government. There are certain sensitive issues that they need to take note of. It’s not that ICC is unaware of what the problem is. They also said that the hearing is in October and there is still some time to wait and watch.
On behalf of ICC headquarters confirmation, Hon Michael Beloff QC will chair of dispute committee Jan Paulson and Dr. Anabelle Bennett AO, SC will be other two members of the dispute panel in the matter of proceedings between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
ICC also made it clear that the decision of the dispute panel shall be non-appealable and shall remain the full and final decision in relation to the matter and binding on all parties.
I also with BCCI’s member thoughts “just wait and watch”.
