PCB to pursue its legal battle against BCCI
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials are set to make a legal appeal to ‘Disputes Resolution Committee’ of the International Cricket Council (ICC) over compensation claim case against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
“The claim will be formally filed with the ICC any day now as the PCB has been told it has very good chances of winning the compensation claim against the BCCI,” a PCB official told PTI.
According to MOU signed in 2014, India was scheduled to play six bilateral series between the period of 2015-2023.
“PCB is confident of success because since 2015 it has offered the BCCI to even play at neutral venues if their government is not interested in sending the team to Pakistan or inviting Pakistan team India for security reasons,” added the official.
Meanwhile, the PCB Chairman Najam Sethi and chief operating officer Subhan Ahmad are currently in London seeking legal advice on the matter.
On the other hand, the BCCI says it cant’ play any bilateral series against Pakistan without getting governments’ clearance.
