Indian board and Pakistani counterpart set to discuss issue in upcoming ICC meet
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has requested the Union Government to convey their stance regarding the bilateral cricketing ties between Pakistan and India.
According to CricTracker, the BCCI has requested the government to formally convey their stance on the matter before the two boards — Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and BCCI — are set to meet in Dubai at the upcoming International Cricket Council (ICC) Disputes Resolution Forum.
“The BCCI would be grateful if you could formally convey the policy/position of the Government of India on the need or requirement of prior clearance from the Government of India for the Indian cricket team to play the Pakistan cricket in in-bound or out-bound tours,” BCCI recently wrote to the ministry.
The PCB has claimed $70m in damages from the BCCI for not honoring the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in 2014.
