BCCI-Cricketers Spat: Indian players refuse to sign ICC sponsorship agreement

A development, which could have far reaching effect as far as the International cricket is concerned, Indian cricketers refused to sign the agreement for the Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka and accused the International Cricket Council of "boycotting" them.

In a letter send to the Indian Cricket Board, the players gave the reasons for their decision, which said, "We believe by signing the player contract, we are caught totally in the middle".

"On the one hand, we suffer exposure from the ICC/BCCI when they could allege non-compliance with our obligations. On the other hand, we could face exposure from our competitive sponsors who have paid us for the right to exploit our brand and image commercially," the players said in a press release.

To sort out the issue and to decide on the future course of action, the BCCI will be holding its working committee meeting today in Bangalore. Chief Executive of the ICC, Malcolm Speed is also expected to meet cricket board officials in India today.
