PCB to file case against BCCI at ICC

The Pakistan Cricket Board will file the case against its Indian counterpart in January 2018 before the International Cricket Council for not honouring the MoUs signed between the two countries for resuming bilateral series, PCB chairman Najam Sethi announced here on Wednesday.

Quote:Next week, the last meeting with the lawyers in England is scheduled to finalise the case against the BCCI after which the PCB will lodge its case before the ICC in the first week of January

Sethi said after chairing the 47th meeting of the Board of Governors, his first as chairman, on Wednesday.

Initially, the chairman added, the PCB had allocated a budget of $1,000,000 to contest the case in the ICC and in other courts if the Board would not get a favourable decision from the game’s governing body.

Quote:However, as now the ICC has made an amendment in the constitution about the dispute resolving committee, according to which the governing body’s decision will be final and both the parties would be bound to accept it, the total [PCB’s] legal expenses would not be more than $500,000.

He elaborated.

The chairman said ICC’s new Future Tours Programme (FTP) was also in the making under which every team would have to play against each other.

Quote:Therefore, hopefully, India would play Pakistan in Test matches, as there would be no third option for any country whether play or to concede points for refusing to play.

He said the BCCI was in contact with the Indian government to seek its permission or guidance under the new FTP system.

There are also some reports suggesting that the BCCI wants to seek such an FTP under which there will be no India-Pakistan Test series, unless bothqualify to play the final [against each other] under compulsion.

Currently, Sethi acknowledged, there was a deadlock between India and Pakistan, adding the PCB was forced to file the case against the BCCI because they had signed MoUs on resuming bilateral series in 2014.
Should have done much earlier. It may enrage BCCI but who gives a fuck when they are already not playing. Might as well sign no MOU in future.
it's happening. just heard the news that PCB has sent legal notice to ICC to setup Dispute Resolution Committee
hi, I m new user. This news is true as I also saw it on tv.
Some important points:
  • A three-member dispute panel is likely to be formed, with Hon Michael Beloff QC, the chairman of Disputes Resolution Committee in chair
  • One member to be nominated by PCB
  • One member to be nominated by BCCI
  • The dispute resolution matter will be governed by British law
  • PCB is claiming up to $70 million for missed series in 2014 and 2015
