CRICKET: ICC says it can’t intervene in India, WI Board dispute

Published:Thursday | October 23, 2014 | 10:15 AM

The International Cricket Council (ICC) says it does not have the power to intervene in the current dispute between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) unless it is asked to do so.



The ICC outlined its position in a statement as the WICB moves to setup a meeting with the BCCI in a bid to repair the damage after its players pulled out of the Indian tour over an internal pay dispute.



However, the ICC says it was concerned with the dispute between BCCI and WICB and was closely monitoring the developments arising from the recently cancelled tour of India.



West Indies players are angry with the West Indies Players Association over a change in their Collective Bargaining Agreement with the WICB, which they claim results in a drastic reduction in their earnings.



The pullout has angered the BCCI and soured its relationship with the WICB.



The matter will be discussed at the ICC Board meeting, which is scheduled for November 10 in Dubai.
