Pakistan demands $70 million from Indian cricket board as compensation

Pakistan demands $70 million from Indian cricket board as compensation”

On May 30, Union Sports Minister, Vijay Goel had said that following the current scenarios, the bilateral series between India and Pakistan will not be possible.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is all set to make a demand of $70 million from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

According to the sources, PCB is expected to file claim with disputes resolution committee of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in coming days. As per this agreement, India was scheduled to play six series against Pakistan and four of them were going to be on latter's soil.

However, BCCI denied playing the series in wake of tensions between the two countries, virtually causing huge financial losses to PCB. The two nations, in 2014, had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) stating that India and Pakistan will play 6 bilateral series from 2015 to 2023. "Secondly they have avoided playing us in bilateral series since 2008 although they have no issues playing against us in ICC events", PCB chairman Najam Sethi was quoted by PTI as saying on Saturday.

"We even offered to host our home series against them at neutral venue (s) to be mutually agreed by both of us", he added.

No top-level worldwide cricket - barring five limited over matches against minnows Zimbabwe in 2015 has been hosted by Pakistan since the terrorists attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in March 2009.

Owing the unwillingness of other teams to tour Pakistan, the green shirts had to play their home games in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
