ICC urges BCCI to mend fences with ICL

Dubai, Oct 14 (UNI) In a bid to resolve the spat between the BCCI and the ICL, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has asked Indian board president Shashank Manohar to meet officials of the rebel T20 league.

''Manohar agreed to provide the Board with a full written report of those discussions in due course,'' the ICC said in a release today.

The ICC took the initiative after the Indian Cricket League (ICL), submitted a formal application for approval to world cricket's governing body.

The ICC's move is expected to be a major boost for the ICL, which has been trying hard to get rid of the 'rebel' tag and become an officially recognised competition.

The ICC board also discussed new regulations regarding official and unofficial leagues and formed a sub-committee comprising legal head David Becker, Manohar, Giles Clarke, Norman Arendse and Lalit Modi to look into the matter.

It was agreed that a final draft would be submitted to the directors for approval.
