KARACHI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has clarified that it has “no jurisdiction” over non-international cricket tournaments, together with Kashmir Premier League (KPL).
The ICC issued the assertion after studies urged that BCCI has urged ICC to not recognise the Kashmir Premier League sanctioned by the Pakistan Cricket Board. The KPL is ready to start from August 6 in Muzaffarabad.
A spokesperson of ICC informed Geo News, “The tournament is not under ICC’s jurisdiction as it is not an international cricket tournament.”
It is pertinent to say right here that the ICC regulation for the sanctioning of an occasion, clause 2.1.3, states that every nationwide cricket federation shall have the only and unique proper to sanction the staging of home matches inside its territory.
The ICC can intervene solely, in accordance with clause 2.1.4, if matches are to be held within the territory of an affiliate member’s territory.
According to a report by a cricket web site, the BCCI letter’s foundation is the “disputed status” of the area.
It is value mentioning that India has performed two worldwide matches, in opposition to West Indies in 1983 and in opposition to Australia in 1986, within the India-occupied metropolis of Srinagar.
Earlier, there have been studies, which have been validated by a tweet by former South African cricketer Herschelle Gibbs which confirmed that BCCI was contacting numerous boards to cease international gamers from collaborating within the league.
The PCB had expressed displeasure over BCCI’s move.
“The PCB considers that the BCCI has brought the game into disrepute by issuing warnings to multiple ICC Members to stop their retired cricketers from featuring in the Kashmir Premier League, further threatening they will not be allowed entry into India for cricket-related work,”
“Such conduct from the BCCI is completely unacceptable, against the preamble of the Spirit of Cricket and sets a dangerous precedence, which can neither be tolerated nor ignored,” PCB had stated.
