On May 3, the PCB sent a legal notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for not honouring an MOU, signed in 2014, to play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023. 

Alleging a loss of $200-300 million, the PCB asked for a $60 million compensation for losses faced due to India's refusal to play the series.

The BCCI has maintained that no legal document was signed regarding the series and that cricket with Pakistan was subject to government approval.
