Warne's manager, James Erksine, said Kapil Dev's claims that the Aussie was likely to join the ICL were "nonsense" and the spin wizard would not be a part of it if there was going to be a conflict with BCCI.

Erksine said that he had spoken to Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland about the matter.

"I asked him (Sutherland) politically what the situation is," Erskine was quoted by The Australian.

"He tells me that the BCCI are going to be in a situation where they're probably going to get upset by it. He wonders whether all the Indian players they say they're going to pick will fly in the face of the BCCI. We will wait and see what the political fallout is before anyone puts pen to paper."

McGrath's manager, Warren Craig, also said the pacer was no closer to signing up ICL.

Dean Jones, one of the executive directors on ICL's board, also said that Kapil's claims were not correct.

"He hasn't been briefed properly. He's firing from the hip. Everything's fine. It's just normal Indian press and a few guys not communicating. Discussions are still continuing."
