PCB-BCCI legal battle: Sethi, Subhan record their statement


The former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Najam Sethi recorded his statement in the $70 million compensation case against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at ICC headquarters on Monday.

Sethi, who resigned as the PCB chairman in August, signed the MoU in 2014 at the time of the formation of ‘Big Three’– according to which India were to play six bilateral series, four of which were to be hosted by Pakistan.

But India till now has not played a single bilateral series with Pakistan citing that they are not getting permission from their government.

On Pakistan’s case, the International Cricket Council (ICC) framed a three-member Dispute Panel including Michael Beloff, Jan Paulsson, and Annabelle Bennett.

On the other hand, the COO PCB Subhan Ahmed also appeared alongside Sethi to record his statement over the issue while Ratnakar Shetty represented BCCI in the hearing.

It is important to mention here that the hearing was adjourned till Tuesday and the BCCI will reply to Sethi’s arguments in next hearing.
