After losing a lawsuit in the ICC Dispute Resolution Committee, the PCB has given the BCCI a compensation of USD 1.6 million dollars (about Rs. 11 crores) in compensation.
Ehsan Mani, president of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), claimed that the PCB has given the amount of $ 1.6 million (about Rs 11 crore) as compensation to the BCCI after losing the case in the ICC’s Dispute Resolution Committee.
PCB President Ehsaan Mani said that in this case, other than the amount paid to India, the costs were related to legal fees and travel. The PCB had filed a case against the BCCI last year claiming compensation of around US $ 7 crore (Rs 780 crore) in front of ICC’s Dispute Resolution Committee.
PCB had filed a case against the BCCI for not honouring the Memorandum of Understanding between the two boards. According to this agreement, from 2015 to 2023, India had to play in six bilateral series against Pakistan, which BCCI did not accept.
The Indian Cricket Board’s plea was that they were not playing for Pakistan because the government did not allow it. India also rejected Pakistan’s claim in which they termed the Memorandum of Understanding as legally binding. The BCCI has said that it was merely a proposal.
It is notable that the Indian government has not approved India-Pakistan Bilateral Cricket since the short series in India in 2012. However, in the big tournaments like the ICC Champions Trophy and World Cup, the two teams are allowed to play.
