ICL: Indian Cricket League


ICL, IPL and boards

Written by Commoner on March 6th, 2008   (569 views)

Indian Cricket Leauge (ICL) is now threatening the boards all over the place, and it seems that boards of crickets around the world are in the awe of the economic might of this ICL, and International Cricket Council is also very much ambiguous over this issue.

The officialdom of cricket seems to be united against ICL without the support of ICC, though ICC is not either publicly supporting the ICL or IPL for that matter. Players are being banned by the boards, law suits are being filed, courts are being consulted and the ICL is also filing cases against the reverted players and suing the boards.

This ongoing tussle going on between the boards and the ICL, IPL must come to an end very soon, as it’s damaging the good name of the game. A midway has to be found. Both sides have to find some middle way on the basis of give and take.

In this regard it would be fine if ICL do not follow the policies of luring the top and active players of boards, and it should rely on somewhat lesser players and the recently retired players and an occasional appearance of top players without bondage. While boards also show some sense and they should not try to block the players who are not active in the international arena.
