PCB withdraws cases against ICC on world cup disputeDecember 7th, 2009 - 2:01 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Dec. 7 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has officially withdrawn all legal cases against the ICC and the 2011 World Cup’s organising committee.
The PCB had slapped a legal notice against the ICC after it was stripped of its rights to host the World Cup 2011 in the aftermath of the attack on Sri Lankan players in Lahore in March. A case had also been filed against the move of the World Cup Secretariat from Lahore to Mumbai.
PCB’s legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said that all cases have been resolved through an out-of-court settlement.
“Since there is no dispute now with the ICC we immediately took measures to drop our legal proceedings including those to be initiated by our lawyers in the United Kingdom,” the Daily Times quoted Rizvi said, as saying.
As a result of the agreement between the two parties in Dubai earlier this year, where it was decided that the PCB would retain its hosting fee of 10.5 million dollars and receive payment as compensation for the loss of hosting rights, the board decided to withdraw its legal cases against the ICC.
