Its enough for the Indian Cricket League, they are betrayed for a long time from ICC (International Cricket Council) which is treating the recognition application of the ICL in a very tardy manner.
Expert believes that, giving recognition to Zee promoted Indian Cricket League will end the monopoly of the International Cricket Council, which is prompting ICC to delay the recognition process for ICL.
ICL stated that they applied for getting recognition in April but till now no decision has been taken yet by ICC. The fear of ICC can be seen from the fact that they are asking absurd questions from the promoters of ICL, like what is the objective of the league and why this ICL has been started.
But this time ICL is taking tough move against the International Cricket council. ICL has given them 14 days time and if they did not hear anything in that time, then they will drag the international cricket governing body to court.
Mean while it will be interesting to see if ICC gives recognition to the Unofficial ICL then we will see and new series of competition and every thing will be taken in more professional manner.
