The beleaguered Indian Cricket League management faces fresh trouble after its Pakistani recruits on Tuesday served them a legal notice over non-payment of their dues.
Former Pakistan captain Moin Khan, who played a key role in recruiting Pakistani players and coached 'Hyderabad Heroes' and 'Lahore Badshahs', said in a statement that the players have issued the notice since the management of the rebel league failed to keep their promise.
"Today the Pakistani players who have participated in Indian Cricket League (ICL) filed a legal notice to ICL management against the outstanding payments due since December 2008," Moin said.
"In spite of all the efforts, there is still no response and the promises have not been fulfilled by ICL which caused the players to suffer considerable losses. To this effect, a legal notice has been dispatched to ICL by players to clear their dues," he added.
The Essel group-bankrolled rebel league ran into one trouble after another right since its 2007 inception and faced stiff resistance from BCCI.
ICL's effort to shed its 'rebel' tag and get recognition from International Cricket Council also did not materialise and the league witnessed an exodus of players last year after BCCI extended its amnesty to the cricketers.
