ICC orders PCB to pay Rs9bn to BCCI in failed compensation case
DUBAI (92 News) – The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday ordered the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to pay 60 per cent of the costs incurred by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in two boards’ legal wrangle over Pak-India series agreement.
However, after the decision of ICC Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC), the PCB has to pay more than nine billion rupees to the BCCI.
Earlier in the last month, the ICC DRC had ruled in the BCCI’s favour and dismissed the $6 billion compensation claim against it, today delivered another blow to the PCB.
After that, the India filed a case of compensation against the PCB and the ICC announced that its DRC panel has determined that the PCB should pay 60 percent – equal to more than nine billion rupees – of the BCCI’s claimed costs as well as the administrative costs and expenses of the Panel itself.
Furthermore, the ICC said that its judgement on the matter is binding and non-appealable. The PCB had filed the compensation case against India during former chairman Najam Sethi’s era.
