Karachi :  The Board of Governors of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) gave approval for adopting legal recourse against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for not honouring the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two boards in 2014 to play bilateral series.

PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan and Najam Sethi, who heads the executive committee, told the media  after a meeting of the BOG that the members had given  approval for using legal channels to seek compensation for the financial losses suffered by the PCB due to India not honouring the MoU.

India has not played a bilateral series with Pakistan since 2007, when Pakistan toured India for a full Test series.  The PCB claims that India owes it two home series which translates into millions of dollars for Pakistan cricket.

In January, the PCB even agreed to host a short one-day series in Sri Lanka as part of the MOU but the BCCI backed out by stating they had not clearance from their government for the series.
