ICL players uncertain about futureMarch 30th, 2009 - 8:31 pm ICT by IANS
Napier, March 30 (IANS) The Indian Cricket League’s (ICL) New Zealand recruits say they have not been paid since December.
The rebel Twenty20 league is facing an uncertain future and is reportedly willing to release Kiwi players from contracts, allowing them to compete internationally again.
Former Black Cap Craig McMillan said there has been no official word from the ICL but they have not been paid since December and all the players are in the dark.
He points out payments from India are usually late but they have never been this far behind, according to media reports here.
McMillan says players are awaiting the outcome of a meeting between ICL boss Himanshu Mody and board member Tony Greig in Sydney this week.
If the players are released, it means the likes of Shane Bond and Daryl Tuffey would be eligible for New Zealand again.
