India and Pakistan Cricket Dispute Resolution

India and Pakistan are currently locking horns over the enforceability of a memorandum of understanding for a bilateral series that was supposed to be played between the nations but that India cancelled. It’s a fascinating dispute that has recently been referred to the Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC) of the International Cricket Council (ICC). 1 In light of this, the author thought it would be interesting to briefly explore the background to the dispute, before explaining how proceedings before the DRC work. In particular, the article will focus on:

  • An introduction to the ICC Dispute Resolution Committee Terms of Reference

  • How dispute panels are constituted

  • Powers of the dispute panel

  • Parties rights of appeal
