Asian countries support BCCI over Sivaramakrishnan's ICC appointment

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 - 12:12



Even as the controversy over Laxman Sivaramakrishnan's appointment to the ICC Cricket Committee raged on, the BCCI received support from its Asian allies Sri Lanka and Pakistan who claimed allegations of the Indian Cricket Board forcing a re-vote were baseless.


The furore over the appointment seemed to have created a rift in the cricket world with the Asian countries throwing their weight behind BCCI, which is apparently unhappy with all the noises being made over the former leg-spinner's appointment to the current player's committee.


There were reports earlier on Sunday that a miffed India was threatening to pull out of the upcoming Champions Trophy to be held in England in June.


However, when contacted, a top BCCI official denied such a move.
