The governing body of Pakistan Cricket has paid USD 1.6 million as compensation to the BCCI after losing the case in the ICC’s Dispute Resolution Committee.
According to PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani, they incurred costs of around USD 2.2 million on the compensation case.
“We incurred costs of around USD 2.2 million on the compensation case which we lost,” said Mani.
Mani further added that the entire amount also included the other expenses related to legal fees and travelling.
The PCB had filed a case against the BCCI last year to recover the losses they had to incurred following India’s refusal to play bilateral series against them.
PCB had sought around USD 70 million from BCCI for not honoring a MoU signed between the two boards.
The Indian cricket board had maintained that the MoU was not legally binding.
The dispute resolution committee of the ICC had accepted BCCI’s claims and instructed Pakistan to pay USD 1.6 million to the Indian Cricket Board.
“The ICC committee did accept that Pakistan had a case and that is why the damages/cost we had to pay to the Indian board was around USD 1.6 million,” Mani added.
