The Federation of International Cricketer’s raised a question on ICC for appointing N Srinivasan, the former BCCI chief as the Chairman of International Cricket Council (ICC) despite being barred by the Supreme Court of India form carrying his duties as BCCI president due to a probe into the match-fixing allegations during the IPL 2013 edition.

World players association FICA, which represents the players of all the nations except India and Pakistan, said they were disappointed by this decision. “We’ve seen in recent day’s significant changes at ICC level, which represent a new era in terms of the administration and leadership of world cricket,” outgoing FICA executive chairman Paul Marsh, an Australian, said.

“FICA’s position on this is well known. Our strong preference was for the controversy involving Mr Srinivasan in India to be resolved before the ICC made a decision on the chairmanship. “While it’s disappointing that this did not occur, we can’t let this distract FICA from its responsibility of helping shape cricket’s future.”

Former West Indies Captain Jimmy Adams was reappointed as president at FICA’s annual meeting which was held in Melbourne and South Africa’s Tony Irish was appointed as FICA’s new executive Chairman replaced by Marsh, who will take charge of the Australian football league’s players Association.
