Ireland to challenge ICC 2015 World Cup bar decision
Advertisement
#1
Dublin (Ireland), Apr. 12 (ANI): Cricket Ireland (CI) has said that it may legally challenge the International Cricket Council's (ICC's) decision to bar them and other minnow Test-playing nations from the 2015 World Cup that is to be played in Australia and New Zealand.

Cricket Ireland is reportedly engaged in high-level talks with the 94 other non-Test playing nations about the ICC decision to limit places at the 2015 World Cup to its 10 full members.

According to the Herald Sun and the BBC, lawyers have contacted Cricket Ireland to suggest they should sue.

"I can assure you we're not taking this lying down," Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrom told the BBC.

He added: "We've just moved out of the anger and indignation phase and we're now seriously examining our options. We have spent the last few days talking with the other emerging cricket nations to build a consensus among the 95 non-Test countries - more than 90 per cent of the ICC's membership - and we're now at the point where we decide what we do."

"Everyone agrees we must challenge the decision but we must think about what any challenge would look like, who brings it, how much does it cost and what is the appropriate forum," he said.

He added: "I've received a number of e-mails from prominent sports lawyers who say the decision is imminently challengeable."

Deutrom said any formal move would not be led by Ireland but would be a "95-country challenge" by the ICC associate and affiliate members. (ANI)
