World Cup Boycott: ICC Chief Executives Committee Meeting To Take Place Today

DUBAI: The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executives Committee (CEC) meeting will kick off today (Wednesday) in which ICC will clear India’s “doubts” about security at the upcoming World Cup.

BCCI had a wrote a letter to the ICC heads on Friday, raising security issues at the upcoming Cricket World Cup, to be played in England and Wales this year.

It has also learnt that ICC is unlikely to even discuss the possibility of boycotting Pakistan in the meeting as it is not a “feasible option”.

“The ICC is in no position to ask any cricket board to sever ties with another member nation. It doesn’t have the right to do so. This is a diplomatic issue which is dealt with at the government level,” said official.

On the other hand, former Indian captain Ganguly feels that there is less than even a 1 per cent chance of ICC supporting BCCI in its quest of getting Pakistan banned.

“Banning Pakistan from the World Cup or international cricket won’t be possible. World Cup is still far away and we will see what happens then. There’s less than even one per cent chance of this happening,” he added.
