CAB questions ICC silence on IPL scandal
Tuesday 06 May 2014

Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) Secretary and the petitioner in the IPL corruption controversy, Aditya Verma has once again raised his voice against former BCCI President, N Srinivasan continuing to represent BCCI’s interest within the International Cricket Council (ICC).

In an email addressed to ICC President Alan Isaac and sent to all ICC office-bearers, Verma has expressed his anguish at the ICC's silence "on the issue of the IPL scam". "Cricket is a great sport and it's the duty of ICC and BCCI to maintain the credibility of cricket and players," the letter stated.

The letter alleges that ICC has kept its "mouth shut" on IPL "scams" and should prevent Srinivasan from attending its meetings till the final verdict is announced by the Supreme Court.

"Has the ICC become India Cement Cricket?" the letter questions.

Verma has also questioned ICC's decision of not enquiring the IPL related issues.

"As per ICC conduct rules, if any player's name comes up in any illegal acts, it is the duty of ICC to investigate. But I am sorry to say, ICC is not taking any interest till today," Verma was quoted as saying in a letter.

He urged ICC to stop Srinivasan from functioning as chairman of the ICC's executive board till the probe is over.

"Once again I am requesting on the behalf of my CAB to immediately intervene and take appropriate action against guilty persons. ICC must respect the Indian law, the apex court of the country has stopped the BCCI President from functioning till the probe concludes."

BCCI will pay more to boards for allowing their cricketers to play IPL
The Indian board, though, will make the payments on pro-rata basis, which will depend on the duration of the player’s availability during the season.
CoA curtails BCCI office-bearers powers severely
They will now have to seek C0A approval for travel expenses; Board will not bear expenses for any external legal advice.
