Hectic schedule and financial issues proving hurdles for Indian Cricket League

The hectic international schedule and financial issues are preventing organisers of the Indian Cricket League (ICL) from completing the process of signing players for their inaugural competition slated in October, according to a former Pakistan captain.
Live Cricket The ex-skipper, who has been approached by the organisers to play in the ICL but is still negotiating terms with them, said that several factors were stopping players from signing contracts.

"They want players to be available for them for 45 days and the money they are offering to some (not the top stars) is not enough. Secondly, some players are under pressure from their cricket boards to not sign contracts for the league and some are facing time hassles because of the hectic international schedule," he said.

The ICL, floated by Essel Group that controls India's biggest media firm Zee Telefilms, is planning a Twenty20 tournament.

The BCCI has refused to endorse the ICL and warned its state affiliates and players of sanctions if they get associated with it.

However, the organisers have signed former West Indies skipper Brian Lara and are negotiating with Australian bowling greats Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath, New Zealand's Stephen Fleming and former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq.

The Pakistani player (not Inzamam) said the organisers had approached some players who are contracted to the Lashings club in England, but other than New Zealand allrounder Chris Cairns, no one has signed any contract.
