ICC urges US to fight rebel league

THE International Cricket Council (ICC) has urged US officials to set up a Twenty20 competition on the lines of the Indian Premier League to counter the unauthorized American Premier League.

Last month the American Sports and Entertainment Group announced the launch of the APL, with players drawn from major cricketing nations and especially those signed by the unauthorized Indian Cricket League (ICL). The inaugural edition is to be held in New York in October. "I feel that regulation is not the only way to curb unapproved ventures," the ICC's principal advisor Inderjit Bindra told the Cricinfo Website. "You need to have a successful alternative, too, like how the BCCI (Indian cricket board) developed its Premier League (IPL) as a viable model (to the ICL)."
