FICA voices IPL concerns

Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA) CEO Tim May has expressed concern for the players of the IPL franchise Pune Warriors who have been left with no team to play for after the withdrawl of their owner Sahara India last week.

The former off-spinner said “plenty” of players expressed their concern to the FICA as many of them don’t have a team to play for in the fifth edition of the IPL because of the withdrawal of Sahara Group moments before the players’s auction last Saturday.

“We are concerned about the plight of all of the players from the Kochi and Pune teams,” May said.

“Players have signed contracts with these franchises for a period of two years and the players rightfully expect the franchises (or the IPL) to honour the financial benefits,” he added. The fate of the Pune players is in the balance even as Sahara India and the BCCI are to meet this weekend to sort out differences.
