PCB Ordered to Pay 60% of BCCI’s $3 Million Legal Fee in Bilateral Series Case

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced its Costs Award in the legal proceedings between the PCB and the BCCI.

On behalf of the Dispute Panel formed under the Terms of Reference of the ICC Disputes Resolutions Committee (DRC), the International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced its Costs Award in the legal proceedings between the PCB and the BCCI.

The Dispute Panel has determined that the PCB should pay 60 percent of:

a) The [BCCI’s] Claimed Cost
b) The administrative costs and expenses of the Panel which fall within the scope of paragraph 11.4 of the T/R (including, without limitation, the fees of the Tribunal members, and the costs and expenses they incurred in relation to this matter), the figure whereof is to be supplied to the PCB by the ICC.

The exact amount has not been revealed by the PCB, BCCI or the ICC. However, 60% is understood to be roughly around $2 million.

Given the history between both teams, this is an unwelcome blow for the PCB.

  • Screw the ICC! We have enough internal cricket that we don’t need to ICC which is manipulated by the Big 3 and corrupt to the core.

    India can claim it when they play the committed series here, not before that.
