Dhaka:

Bangladesh Cricket Board on Wednesday hit back at 13 'rebel' players, banning them for 10 years for their decision to join the unofficial Indian Cricket League (ICL).

"The Bangladesh Cricket Board has decided to ban for 10 years any player, official, or technical staff, who participates in events not authorised by it or the ICC," a BCB spokesperson said.

"The BCB has also barred them all from its domestic and international games and will not allow them access to any of its facilities. These decisions were taken at an emergency meeting today and are line with the ICC's policy on unauthorised cricket," he said.

"The decision will be equally effective for contracted players or coaches if they participate in any cricket event having no approval of the ICC or the BCB," BCB president Major-General Sina Ibn Jamali told reporters today.

BCB convened an emergency meeting today to discuss the resignations of seven contracted players.
