We are not intimidated by BCCI: Subhas Chandra

New Delhi, Sept. 28 (PTI): The BCCI may have stolen the thunder from the Indian Cricket League (ICL) by announcing its own Twenty20 league but Subhas Chandra, chief of Essel Group bankrolling ICL, insists he is not intimidated by the Board.

ICL created a flutter by roping in 50 domestic players, apart from some big names including Brian Lara and Inzamam-ul-Haq, but BCCI retaliated by announcing the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Champions League, which would feature stalwarts like Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Stephen Fleming.

Chandra, however, is unfazed by the development and insists he is not cowered.

“We are not intimidated by the BCCI, don’t worry. We are not worried even,” he told CNN-IBN.

Chandra confirmed that ICL has been pushed to November but insisted that the project was well on its course.

“A lot of progress has been made over the last four months. We were surprised by the public reaction and the media support. It was a tremendous response which we really did not expect.”
