ICL mulling legal action against ICC over its status

London, Sep 23 (UNI) The Indian Cricket League (ICL) is mulling legal action against the ICC if the world governing body does take up its application seeking 'official status' within a week's time.

ICL counsel Jeremy Roberts said his clients were considering various options if the ICC continues to delay the status of the unauthorised Twenty20 tournament.

''Our clients still want to coexist peacefully with the Indian Premier League and they want to work with the national boards.

''They are hoping to receive a response from the ICC over the next week or so. If that doesn't materialise, they will be considering their options closely,'' Roberts was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

Earlier, ICL Business Head Himanshu Mody had said the ICC has been treating their application for recognition in a ''tardy manner'' and if they don't hear soon from the world body, the 'rebel' league would look for other options.

''We had first applied for recognition in April. But till now nothing concrete has come out. I feel the ICC is trying to delay the matter, they had last sent a letter asking why did we start the league and like that.

''We had recently sent a reply but they are acting in a tardy manner,'' Modi had said.
