ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) would be taking up the matter with the International Cricket Council (ICC) after Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) refused to compensate PCB for not playing with Pakistan in bilateral series as outlined in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

The PCB had received a response from BCCI on the notice sent to BCCI last week demanding compensation for not playing with Pakistan in bilateral series as outlined in the MoU.

BCCI have raised some points in response. The first one of these is that they don’t consider the MOU a binding legal agreement between the two boards.

Secondly, they have pointed out that permission of government is necessary for any Indo-Pak series and since their government is not giving them permission, they can’t play with Pakistan.

Talking to media, a PCB official said PCB would be taking up the matter at the ICC’s Annual General meeting to be held in June.

“The agreement to play series against India was a legal contract but India did not honour it,” he said. He said the final constitution of winding up of the Big 3 would also be approved in the meeting.-Online
