Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan announced on Friday that the board has decided to file a legal case against Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for dishonouring the memorandum of understanding signed between the two cricket boards.
This he said while talking to media persons following a PCB board of governors’ meeting in Karachi.
Shahryar said that PCB will not beg in front of India asking it to play against Pakistan, “instead we want compensation for the losses we have suffered”.
PCB Executive Committee Chairman Najam Sethi, while talking about the losses, said: “PCB has suffered a loss of $200 million because India refused to play the promised series against Pakistan.”
Shahryar added to Sethi’s comments saying Pakistan did not only bear the said financial losses but also the loss of the most awaited series in cricket arena.
“India signed MoU but did not play any series, so we will ask International Cricket Council to compensate this loss as the MoU was signed in an ICC meeting so they are also aware of the matter,” the PCB chief said.
“We will file a legal case against India and will seek compensation soon or urge them to play a series against us,” he maintained.
