PCB dejected with Manohar’s approach on BCCI compensation case

PCB is displeased that the ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar has defended BCCI’s choice of not playing bilateral series with Pakistan right through the arbitration assembly on PCB’s choice to document a reimbursement claim of US$ 70 million towards the Indian cricket board.

The PCB officials who attended the arbitration meetings in Dubai and London were reportedly disappointed with the way Manohar has defined India’s perspective within the reimbursement case.

“It did not appear that he used to be representing the ICC. He spoke most commonly protecting the BCCI’s place of no longer playing Pakistan in bilateral cricket series since 2007,” Pakistan media has reported a PCB source as saying. “He (Manohar) did not seem to be in favour of a case being filed with the ICC,” the source added.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Aziz Sethi had earlier announced that the board would file a compensation claim against the Board of Control for Cricket in India with the ICC disputes resolution committee in the first week of January 2018.

Sethi was looking forward to documenting a reimbursement declare prior to the ICC disputes resolution committee.

The PCB source has also mentioned that the Board is anticipating the ICC disputes solution committee to present a choice in a period of six months of the submitting of the case in January. “We expect the primary listening to inside of 30 days of the time we document the declare,” the source had stated.

 The PCB has allotted GBP 1,000,000 to settle the Felony and different bills of the case.
