ICC's Dispute Resolutions Committee to hear PCB, BCCI case

The ICC’s Dispute Resolutions Committee, the arbitrator between Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Board of Cricket Control of India (BCCI) for the MoU dispute, will hear the case at ICC’s headquarter.

PCB and BCCI signed an MoU in 2014 for playing six bilateral series from 2015 to 2023, which the latter did not honour.

The PCB claimed that they suffered a heavy loss of an estimated $70 million from India’s refusal to play the two bilateral series scheduled in 2014 and 2015.

The two boards had numerous meetings to resolve the issue, but they did not reach to a conclusion. As a result, PCB eventually sent a dispute notice to the ICC in the last November, which will be finally heard now.

Khwaja Ahmad Hosain, Advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan, Alexandros Panayides of Clifford Chance, London, Lawyers from Clifford Chance, London, will represent the Pakistan Cricket Board.

The panel which will hear the case is comprised of Michael Beloff QC, Chairperson, Jan Paulsson Annabelle Bennett.
