FICA blasts ICC for ‘ignoring’ Siva’s vote dispute

The ICC had said it was considering a request by FICA to investigate allegations of improper influence by BCCI.

The international cricketers’ association says it will refer a disputed vote for an ICC position to an ethics committee itself,criticizing the governing body for ignoring allegations of vote-fixing in Laxman Sivaramakrishnan’s recent election.

The Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations,which represents players from six of the 10 test-playing countries,says it has strong evidence that the national associations were pressured to vote for India’s Sivaramakrishnan as a player representative on the ICC cricket committee.

Sivaramakrishnan won the re-vote over former FICA chief executive Tim May,who later resigned from FICA.

The ICC had said on May 9 it was considering a request by FICA to investigate allegations of improper influence by India’s powerful cricket board.
