FICA wants ICC's ethics officer to probe L Sivaramakrishnan's appointment
The international players' union believes it has evidence to back up claims that last month's International Cricket Council cricket committee captains' vote was unduly influenced.
The Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA) questioned the legitimacy of the vote since it was made by the 10 full-member captains and yesterday announced it had referred the matter to the ICC’s ethics officer.
FICA’s former chief executive Tim May lost his place on the committee with L Sivaramakrishnan voted in. “We have evidence of captains being pressured by their boards into changing their votes away from the incumbent player representative on the committee Tim May, in favour of Sivaramakrishnan, and we will present this to the ethics officer. The evidence is strong and we expect it to be acted upon,” executive chairman Paul Marsh said.
