Dubai: The meeting between the top officials of the Board of Control for Cricket in India and Pakistan Cricket Board ended without any conclusive outcome after the Indian government on Monday refused to give clearance for any bilateral series with Pakistan.

The BCCI, represented by joint secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, CEO Rahul Johri and GM (Cricket Operations) MV Sridhar met with their Pakistani counterparts to discuss the pressing issues including the US $60 million compensation demanded by the PCB.

"The delegations of the BCCI and PCB have met in Dubai on Monday and shared their stated positions. The meeting was held in a cordial atmosphere and its outcome will be shared with the members of their respective boards," a BCCI release stated.
However, a BCCI source privy to the development said there were deliberations on the $60 million compensation that the PCB had demanded from BCCI for not adhering to the MoU.

There were thoughts of sneaking a small limited overs series in September, when Champions League T20 used to be held.
It is learnt that BCCI is unlikely to pay any damages as its stand has always been clear that government clearance is paramount when it comes to playing Pakistan. In fact, BCCI has asked PCB to withdraw their compensation claim.
