ICC to look into BCCI's complaint over Lloyd's comments
Cricinfo staff
November 21, 2008

The ICC will look into a complaint from the BCCI against Clive Lloyd, the
ICC cricket committee chairman, for suggesting the unrecognised ICL and the
IPL, run by the BCCI, should learn to co-exist. However, Haroon Lorgat, the
ICC chief executive, said it would first check with Lloyd to understand the
context and veracity of the remarks that were reported in an Indian
newspaper.

Confirming the ICC had received an email from N Srinivasan, the BCCI
secretary, on the issue, Lorgat told Cricinfo the ICC would approach the
issue in a "fair and appropriate" manner. There was no time-frame involved
in the process, he said.

Asked about the ICL during a private visit to Mumbai last week, Lloyd, the
former West Indies captain had told Times of India that "there's nothing
like having a discussion to break the ice", and suggested the West Indies
needed leagues like the ICL and the IPL to revive the game in the country.

The BCCI on Thursday wrote to the ICC seeking action against Lloyd and
compared the situation to the stepping down of Sunil Gavaskar as ICC
cricket committee chairman earlier this year. Gavaskar was asked by the ICC
to choose between his ICC role and that of a media commentator.

Lorgat said he didn't believe the comparison was valid. "We need to first
establish if the merits of the case are the same," Lorgat told Cricinfo.
"Personally, I don't believe so. We need to just ensure he does not make
comments that are not appropriate. And if it is different case we need to
establish exactly what the facts are without which it is very difficult to
make comments."

The BCCI has adopted a hard-line position against ICL, and banned players
associated with it from all forms of official cricket. It has also refused
to entertain requests from the ICL for recognition, and pushed for a
worldwide ban on players and officials associated with the Twenty20 league.

Interestingly, the BCCI's Asian allies have emerged with conflicting
policies on ICL. Sri Lanka Cricket, headed by Arjuna Ranatunga, has allowed
six ICL players to participate in a domestic competition, while Javed
Miandad, the new director-general of the Pakistan board, has questioned the
intent of the bans enforced by past PCB administrations on players
contracted with the ICL.

i cannot see how the thugs at the bcci can carry through their
opposition to the icl, and if they try to ram it through, i think they
will find nz, england, pakistan, and bangladesh join sl in opposing
it. bcci may have the money but their project to conquer the world
will fail as all such projects do.

I really hope ICL take BCCI to the court. BCCI have no case as far as
legality of this issue is concerned. Miandad made a good point, why
can't there be two leagues?

More leagues, more competition. More competition, more money into
cricket.

'More sport' doesn't always mean 'more $$$'.

Having said that... GO ICL!

I watched a load of ICL matches on tv (missed the ***y final) one of
my colleagues was umpiring in the matches. I got the impression from
his emails that ICL was quite innovative when dealing with umpire
referrals and regulations, but totally telly driven. A man with a flag
which was waved when the ads had finished to tell the umpires to allow
play to continue.
Sometimes the whole description seemed like the league was sort of
Ad Hoc, but you wouldn't have noticed that from tv land.

Our kids are still running around shouting "king in taste, King in
quality" and it's stuck in my head too.

Being capitalistic is not whining.

By your definition all western countries would automatically be whiners. Not
that they are not born whiners but still...:-)
