KARACHI: PCB has finally initiated contacts with British lawyers for legal proceedings against Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
PCB’s top official will be sent to London on Wednesday to meet and consult British legal experts for finalising the case against Indian board for breach of contract with PCB.
In 2014, BCCI signed a Memorandum of Understanding with PCB to play six cricket series between 2015 and 2022 but didn’t honor its commitment till date, reflecting the typical Indian character and testing patience of PCB, specially the top old guys who went ahead to accept the big three formula by strangely defining “national interest” to earn top dollars through these series. That day-dreaming soon ended in humiliation and deception by the Chankians on our East.
PCB has now announced to take formal legal action against the BCCI at every forum, including the ICC and CAS to seek compensation for losses it suffered due to India’s continuous refusal of playing series with Pakistan.
Two of those six series have already fallen through; it does not look like the third one will happen either. So, we are left with no option but to pursue legal action against India, Shahryar Khan had said last week.
He added that India’s refusal to play the series in Pakistan in 2014 had cost the PCB around a million dollars.
According to sources, PCB will first send a legal notice to BCCI and will formally present a case in this month’s ICC meeting.
If it does not provide a fruitful result, then the Pakistan Cricket Board will go to the international court of justice.
