Premise for Demanding Compensation from BCCI was not Conclusive – Eshan Mani
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Eshan Mani admitted they didn’t have all ends covered while claiming Rs 447 crore compensation from BCCI from the ICC. However, this is the reason why PCB lost the arbitration case heard by ICC’s Dispute Resolution Committee.
Mani disappointed with the result
Moreover, the PBC had claimed a hefty compensation from The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). They argued they didn’t honour an alleged Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) where six bilateral series between 2015-2023 was agreed.

However, Mani said PCB had consulted with the queen’s counsel lawyers in England. Also, the Pakistan Cricket Board went into arbitration and litigation after being conferred with the lawyers.
“It is disappointing. The fact is that before filing the case the PCB had consulted the queen’s counsel lawyers in England and were advised that the claim for compensation was strong and on this basis, the PCB went into arbitration and litigation,” Eshan Mani said.
Meanwhile, the former ICC president said there will always be a risk factor involved in litigation.
“When I took over, the proceedings of the case were nearly complete, and if we had withdrawn, it would have shown us as weak. But whatever the situation is right now, we have to face it and move on,” Mani added.

Meanwhile, Eshan Mani replaced Najam Sethi who had led the move to file litigation against the BCCI. It was based on an alleged MoU in last year. He also believed the ICC member nations should never go into litigation and arbitration.
“The ICC Disputes Resolution Committee didn’t accept the MOU as a legally binding agreement although they say morally India should have played against us. Perhaps the documentation on basis of which we decided to claim compensation was not as conclusive as we felt it was.” he further added.
