The Pakistan Cricket Board has forwarded a legal notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India for dishonouring the Memorandum of Understanding between the two. The MoU signed between PCB and BCCI was on the terms that they agreed to play six bilateral series from 2015 to 2023. The MoU has not received clearance on the schedule of series due to strained diplomatic relations between India and Pakistan.
Under the said agreement, India and Pakistan were scheduled to play in the month of November – December 2015, but India refused to play on neutral grounds like Saudi Arabia or Sri Lanka
The PCB while taking advice from an English Law Firm claims that due to the refusal of India to play the series which was supposed to be hosted by Pakistan, they have lost about $200-300 million. The PCB notice claims that due to India’s repeated refusal, three series have not been played since 2015, two of them which Pakistan was supposed to host.
The PCB has initiated the legal process through a Notice of Dispute under the Dispute Resolution Committee Terms of reference of the International Cricket Council.
