The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has demanded a compensation close to ₹450 crore from the BCCI for not honouring the MOU to play six bilateral series between 2014 and 2023.

The PCB had recently sent a notice to BCCI. In the notice, PCB has complained that it suffered loses to the tune of $ 69 million since Indian team missed the November 2014 and December 2015 series.

The BCCI is to respond within seven days of receipt of notice, sent on May 3.

The MOU, signed in 2014, was part of a deal between the two boards under which Pakistan supported the Big Three governance and financial model in the ICC.

The BCCI has repeatedly turned down offers from the PCB for bilateral matches on the grounds that it is not being given clearance by the Indian government due to tense relations between the two countries.

The PCB informally had told the BCCI representatives at the recent ICC meeting of its decision to start legal proceedings against them to claim compensation.
