KARACHI – The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday sent a legal notice to the International Cricket Council (ICC) for settling a matter pertaining to India’s reluctance to play a series with Pakistan despite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
The PCB has asked the ICC for forming a Dispute Resolution Committee to adjudicate the matter as the Indian cricket board has breached the MoU signed between them.
In 2014, the PCB and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) inked a MoU deciding that two archrivals were to play eight bilateral series between 2015-2023.
However, the BCCI has repeatedly rejected Pakistan’s request for holding matches.
Earlier this year, the PCB sent a legal notice to its Indian counterpart for not fulfilling its promise and warned of initiating legal action against it.
After the repeated refusal by India, the PCB decided to pursue compensation claim case against the BCCI with the ICC.
According to media reports, Pakistan has claimed US$67 million as they incurred losses due to India’s refusal to play Pakistan.
