LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has indulged in the legitimate legal war with Indian counterpart as it sent a notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a $60 million claim due to being evasive to play a bilateral series.
The notice issued from PCB states that India did not keep its word and continued to act stubborn even in the cricket ground.
The Indian cricket board signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the PCB) in 2014 under which they were due to play six series -- four to be hosted by Pakistan -- between 2015 and 2023.
The notification said that BCCI cancelled two series that incurred for PCB to bear grave financial loss.
The BCCI denied clearance for the series following strained diplomatic relations between India and Pakistan owing to ceasefire violations in the disputed Himalayan state of Kashmir.
Those two series were to be played under PCB , whose arrangements had been undertaken before BCCI cancelled them. Compensation of the loss that PCB bore, due to the uncalled for cancellations, has been proposed in the notification.
PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said legal measures were being sought as Pakistan was suffering lost revenues.
"We have initiated the legal process by sending BCCI a Notice of Dispute under the Dispute Resolution Committee Terms of reference of the International Cricket Council," Khan told AFP.
"PCB has claimed the losses and damage suffered by it, which comes to around 60 million dollars, as a result of BCCI´s breaches of the agreement."
