India vs Pak: Why Has the PCB Sued BCCI for Rs 447 Crore?

The ICC Dispute Resolution Forum heard a compensation claim case between the Board of Control for Cricket in India and Pakistan Cricket Board from 1-3 October in Dubai. The PCB have claimed Rs 447 crore compensation from the BCCI for not honouring an agreement.

  • 1. What is the Case About?

    The PCB have sued BCCI for not honouring a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). India were supposed to play a series against Pakistan in November 2014 and December 2015 according to the agreement, but it couldn’t take place because the Indian government has disapproved any bilateral ties with Pakistan until cross-border terrorism ends.

    The ICC panel comprising Jan Paulsson and Dr Annabelle Bennett was headed by Michael Beloff. The chairman was the head of the ICC tribunal which handed Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif bans for spot-fixing in 2011, according to ESPNCricinfo.

    India and Pakistan have not played a Test series against each other since 2007. The situation has been tense after the the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai. India and Pakistan played their last bilateral series in 2012/13.
