In April, PCB and BCCI gave strong statements during the meeting held by ICC in Calcutta. Things got intense between two arch rival boards as both boards expressed their opinion on the India Pakistan cricket series. The meeting also included former PCB Chairman Najam Sethi.
The matter has been discussed in connection with bilateral series. The BCCI Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary has repeatedly refused to accept it as a contract. He claimed that it was a letter of interest only and not a contract. PCB would not be considered as a war but they considered it as an agreement.
