Dubai: ICC’s dispute panel on Tuesday dismissed Pakistan’s compensation claim against India for allegedly failing to honour a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on bilateral series, handing the BCCI a massive win and ending the long-standing feud. “PCB case against BCCI dismissed by dispute panel,” the ICC posted on its official Twitter page. “The judgement is binding and non-appealable,” it added.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had demanded ₹447 crore compensation after alleging that the BCCI didn’t honour the MoU that required India to play six bilateral series between 2015 to 2023.
The BCCI, on its part, maintained that the alleged MoU was not binding and did not stand as Pakistan failed to honour a commitment to support the revenue model suggested by India for the ICC. “We are happy that our stand has been vindicated. What PCB termed as MoU was just a proposal letter,” CoA chief Vinod Rai said.
