Having suffered the damage of a misplaced declare for damages from the BCCI, the PCB now has to withstand the added insult of paying the India board practically USD 2 million in authorized prices.
Final month, the PCB’s try to assert USD 63 million from the BCCI for 2 bilateral sequence that didn’t happen in 2014 and 2015 was rejected by the ICC’s Dispute Decision Committee (DRC).
As is the norm in arbitration instances akin to this, the successful celebration claims authorized prices from the shedding aspect, which the BCCI had accomplished. These claims had been submitted every week after the choice.
As with the ultimate resolution, there was a morsel of comfort for the PCB in that the panel determined they might not should pay full prices. The Pakistan board had earlier spent near USD 1 Million on the case alone.
“The Dispute Panel,” an ICC assertion mentioned, “has decided that the PCB ought to pay 60 p.c of: “(a) the [BCCI’s] Claimed Prices; and (b) the executive prices and bills of the Panel… (together with, with out limitation, the charges of the Tribunal members, and the prices and bills they incurred in relation to this matter), the determine whereof is to be provided to the PCB by the ICC.”
Although neither celebration has made the whole quantity public, 60% is known to come back out to roughly USD 2 million. For a board that already does with out enjoying India at bilateral cricket, or at residence in Pakistan, that will probably be an particularly unwelcome blow.
“The PCB notes the ICC Dispute Panel’s resolution on BCCI’s claims for his or her authorized expense incurred on the PCB-BCCI dispute,” the board mentioned. “The award of considerably lesser prices than claimed by BCCI displays that PCB’s case had deserves. The PCB, nevertheless, reiterates its disappointment within the authentic resolution/award given towards it.”
