Pawar dismisses ICL

Mumbai:

BCCI President Sharad Pawar has ridiculed the Indian Cricket League, saying it would mainly feature players coming out of retirement.

"I can't see any threat from the ICL. Nobody is interested in watching retired players," said Pawar.

He also warned that promising young players would be ineligible for the Indian team if they played in the tournament.

"Only those who play official cricket can represent India" the BCCI President added.

The BCCI has refused to recognize the league, which has consequently struggled to lure players despite reports of big money offers.
