The Pakistan Cricket Board is likely to inquire the Board of Control for Cricket in India to pay USD 70 million for weakening to take part in two home bilateral tournaments. It is probable to record its claims to the ICC’s argument declaration committee in a several days.
In 2014, BCCI had signed an MoU stating that India would take part in six bilateral tournament over Pakistan in the eight-year period from 2015 to 2023. However, due to political issues between the two countries, BCCI backed out from the agreement.
“Our case is that the BCCI signed an MoU with us in 2014 to play six bilateral series, starting with our home series, which they have not done as yet,” Najam Sethi, PCB chairman, told PTI. “Secondly they have avoided playing us in bilateral series since 2008 although they have no issues playing against us in ICC events.”
The BCCI had affirmed that it did not get the necessary consent from its government to take part over Pakistan in bilateral tournament, though played them in the recent time in the ICC Champions Trophy.
While, Sethi asserted that Pakistan had no problems playing India at impartial site, though the Indian board didn’t concur to that also, because of which PCB had to suffer enormous monetary losses.
“We even offered to host our home series against them at neutral venue(s) to be mutually agreed by both of us,” he affirmed. “In 2016, we even offered to host a limited overs series in Sri Lanka.” It said.
PCB have just endured gigantic misfortunes with worldwide groups declining to visit Pakistan since the 2009 assault on the Sri Lankan group transport. The board has needed to spend in millions to have their home amusements in UAE from that point forward.
