The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will file a case against the Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI) at International Cricket Council (ICC) in January 2018. The news confirmed by the PCB chairman Najam Sethi at the 47th meeting of the Board of Governors.
Najam Sethi said,”Next week, the last meeting with the lawyers in England is scheduled to finalise the case against the BCCI after which the PCB will lodge its case before the ICC in the first week of January.”
“However, as now the ICC has made an amendment in the constitution about the dispute resolving committee, according to which the governing body’s decision will be final and both the parties would be bound to accept it, the total [PCB’s] legal expenses would not be more than $500,000,” he added.
He also said,”Therefore, hopefully, India would play Pakistan in Test matches, as there would be no third option for any country whether play or to concede points for refusing to play. There are also some reports suggesting that the BCCI wants to seek such an FTP under which there will be no India-Pakistan Test series, unless both qualify to play the final [against each other] under compulsion.”
