The ICC will discuss the fate of players who have left the Indian Cricket League to play for their countries at its executive board meeting in Dubai on April 17 and 18.

After being told that Pakistan on Monday named three players in their list of 30 probables for the T20 World Cup, an ICC spokesman refused to say more. "It's up to the executive board," he said.

The BCCI didn't come up with an accurate answer. "The BCCI's stance on the ICL is very clear. We do not recognise it. It is for the ICC to decide," said N Srinivasan, BCCI secretary.

In Lahore, Pakistan's selection committee chief Abdul Qadir announced the list of probables which includes Abdul Razzaq, Rana Naved and Imran Nazir. All three played in the ICL before being banned from playing for Pakistan. They have recently ended their contracts with the 'rebel' league. "But let me make it clear their (the ICL trio) final selection depends totally on them being cleared by the PCB which is awaiting guidelines from the ICC," Qadir said.
