Mumbai: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Vice-president Rajiv Shukla has said that the fate of the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) players depends on BCCI’s Working Committee meeting here on the 14th of this month.
Earlier this year, the BCCI had granted amnesty to 79 ICL cricketers, along with 11 former cricketers and 11 officials who were released from their ICL contracts. It was declared that these cricketers and officials would undergo a cooling period of one year, during which they will be eligible to participate in the Indian domestic tournaments only.
“The fate of ICL’s players will be decided during the Working Committee meeting,” Shukla told Cricketnirvana on Tuesday.
Shukla also confirmed that there wouldn’t be any bidding for the ICL players at the IPL auction; instead they would be sold to franchises at fixed prices.
“There wont be any bidding at the IPL auction for ICL players. There will be fixed price for all players,” he said.
It was later revealed that the ICL players will be sold at a 20 lakhs maximum or 8 lakhs minimum to respective franchises.
Asked if IPL would be World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) complaint, Shukla said “we have not any discussion on this issue yet. It will be discussed in due course.”
