Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has requested the International Cricket Council (ICC) to set up an arbitrary committee to resolve the legal dispute with their rival board, Board of Cricket Control India (BCCI).
As per Dawn News, PCB has sent a notice to the ICC to form a Dispute Resolution Committee. Pakistan’s cricketing body has taken this step six months after they sent a ‘notice of dispute’ of $60 million to the BCCI for not honouring the MoU that they signed.
As per the MoU the two teams, Pakistan and India, were to play six bilateral series from 2015 to 2022.
If ICC creates an arbitrary committee, it will likely to be headed by a barrister and will have two more members, one of Pakistan’s choice and the other of India’s choice.
With the current political situation between the two neighbouring countries, it does not seem like they will contest in a bilateral series any time soon.
As per Najam Sethi, Pakistan have suffered a loss of $200 million because of India’s refusal of playing in a two-nation cricket series.
