'ICC will not recognise ICL until BCCI approves it'
The International Cricket Council on Wednesday made it clear that it would not recognise the Indian Cricket League until the rebel twenty20 series gets an approval from the BCCI.
Asked whether the ICC was considering ICL's request for recognition, the governing body's acting chief executive Dave Richardson said since the league was a domestic event it had to be first cleared by the Indian board.
"We have got a request from the ICL but we can't move ahead as first the Indian board has to approve the ICL which remains a domestic event," he said at a news conference in Lahore.
"As far as domestic events are concerned we leave it up to the home boards to make policy decisions," he added.
Richardson said the ICC had left it to the respective boards to outline a policy on the ICL and players who have signed up for it.
The Pakistan Cricket Board, which has banned 16 of its players for appearing in the ICL, has insisted that it would not review the ban unless the ICC changes its stance on the rebel league.
