Anil Kumble using Virat Kohli's name to strengthen his case in pay hike proposal claims BCCI official

"BCCI should come out with a proposal on Pakistan only after consultations with the government".

The PCB had earlier this month sent a legal notice to its Indian counterpart for failing to honour the MoU signed between the two cricket boards in 2014.

"Pakistan is spreading terrorism in Kashmir, indulging in cross-border terrorism".

A three-member delegation of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), including Chairman Shahryar Khan, Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad, and Pakistan Super League Chairman Najam Sethi, left for Dubai Monday morning to know the reasons why Indian cricket board refused to play bilateral series with Pakistan.

Vijay Goel said that India Pakistan can't play bilateral series till the terror from Pakistan remains.

Both have won twice, five races into an intriguing Formula One season, and Vettel leads Hamilton by six points. Notably, however, that remains Red Bull's only pole position since 2013.

"Terrorism and sports can not go hand in hand", remained the statement from Goel.

The PCB has already sent a legal notice to BCCI claiming damages worth Dollars 60 million (Rs 387 crore approx) for not honouring the MoU created to conduct five bilateral series between India and Pakistan between 2015 and 2023. "Bilateral series in the current situation is not possible", the Sports Minister said on the BCCI-PCB meet in Dubai.

Anil Kumble, who is the coach of the team at present has been at loggerheads with the BCCI and the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) with regards to the increase of pay for the players and support staff. Due to the rising issues between coach and cricketing body, the latter made a decision to open up applications for the post of the coach of the national side. "And if the second round fails, then the matter will be referred to the ICC Dispute Resolution Committee", the Dawn quoted the source as saying.

"India didn't play any match with Pakistan despite the agreement".

Pakistan did tour India for a short limited-over series in December 2012 but the traditional cricketing foes have not played a full bilateral series since 2007.
