WICB to meet on players’ participation in controversial league

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Directors of the West Indies Cricket Board are expected to discuss the issue of West Indies players participating in the controversial Indian Cricket League.

This follows reports Thursday that five members of the West Indies team had been offered contracts of between US$350 000 to US$550 000 to play in the proposed Twenty20 league.

Already, ex-West Indies captain and batting star Brian Lara has signed up for the ICL which is yet to receive any blessing from the International Cricket Council or any member boards.

While several other boards have already indicated they would not sanction its players participating in the ICL, the WICB is yet to issue a definitive statement.

CMC Sports understands that WICB directors will link up with president Julien Hunte via telephone, to discuss the issue of regional players joining the league.

While the approached players are yet to sign the contracts, they have not rejected the offer from the Essel Group, the media giants behind the league.

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq and teammates Mohammed Yousuf and Abdul Razzaq have already committed themselves to the ICL.
