The Pakistan Cricket Board has paid $1.6 million to the Board of Control for Cricket in India as compensation after losing a case in the International Cricket Council (ICC) ‘s Dispute Resolution Committee.

According to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani, the PCB has paid $1.6 million to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) as compensation after losing a case in the International Cricket Council (ICC) ‘s Dispute Resolution Committee.

The REASON?

The PCB had filed a compensation case against the BCCI last year before the Committee for an amount of $70 million for not honouring an MoU signed between the two boards.

According to the MoU, India and Pakistan were supposed to play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023, which the BCCI botched to honour.

The BCCI on the other hand argued that they were not able to play against Pakistan as the Government of India refused to give permission.

India also dismissed the Pakistan board’s claims as legally binding.
