ICC forms panel to resolve India-Pakistan cricket dispute

Lahore: The International Cricket Council has created a dispute resolution panel to hear Pakistan’s compensation claim against arch-rival India for refusing to play a bilateral series. Sporting ties between the cricket-mad South Asian neighbours have suffered in recent years amid rising political tensions, and Pakistani cricket authorities say their Indian counterparts have violated a 2014 memorandum of understanding under which the two were to play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is seeking $70 million in compensation. It initiated dispute resolution proceedings against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at the ICC in November last year. A three-member panel will hear the claim later this year, the sport’s world governing body said in a statement on Tuesday. “The hearing will take place in Dubai from 1-3 October and the decision of the Dispute Panel shall be non-appealable” and binding on both Pakistan and India, the ICC said.
