Lahore (Staff Report): The officials from Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will meet in Dubai on May 29, following a notice by the PCB, to discuss the memorandum of understanding (MOU) calling for six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023, ESPNcricinfo reported
According to report, BCCI claimed that there was just a MoU between the two countries not a formal "contract". However, chaiman PCB Shahryar Khan said that it was a proper contract signed between the two boards in their bid to revive bilateral ties.
BCCI said that in the Dubai-meeting Amitabh Choudhary will represent the Indian board.
If both the boards fail to reach the conclusion, the matter would be taken before ICC chief executive officer Dave Richardson. He added the failure to reach amicable settlement could force the PCB to take the issue to the ICC Dispute Resolution Committee.
Earlier this month, the PCB had sent a legal notice to its Indian counterpart, BCCI, initiating proceedings to seek compensation from the Indian board for failing to honour the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two cricket boards in 2014.
According to the MOU, India were supposed to play against Pakistan in 2015, and are scheduled to host them in 2017.
However, in 2015, the BCCI had offered PCB a series at home, which the PCB declined. India, in turn, refused to play Pakistan's home series at a neutral venue without specifying any reasons.
