ICC constitutes DRC committee to adjudicate dispute between BCCI, PCB over MoU

On Wednesday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) formed a three-member conflict resolution committee following  the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) initiation about dispute resolution process against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The panel which comprises of  Michael Beloff QC, Jan Paulsson and Annabelle Bennett  will conduct a three-day hearing in Dubai to arbitrate in its legal dispute between the two arch rivals.

However, the dates are not yet scheduled for the hearing  but it will be communicated to all parties in due course and the decision of the dispute panel and the reasons therefore will be made public.

In a notice sent to the ICC in November 2017, the PCB had asked the latter to constitute up a Dispute Resolution Committee to adjudicate the matter.

‘Notice of Dispute’ was sent by PCB  to BCCI for breaching the 2014 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two cricketing bodies, in which six bilateral series were scheduled to take place between 2015 and 2022.

Since BCCI did not respond to the notice, PCB took the next step under ICC rules to request an arbitration panel.

Of the six bilateral series initially agreed upon in the MoU signed in 2014, revenue from four series was supposed to go to Pakistan and two series were meant to generate money for India.
