FICA head hits out at IPL
Monday 06 August 2012

Federation of International Cricketers’ Association chief executive, Tim May has said that the IPL has sidelined FICA and reduced it to an advisory role in the current payment dispute between Royal Challengers Bangalore and some of its players.

May termed it as “frustrating” that the Royal Challengers and Deccan Chargers managements did not reply to correspondence from FICA regarding the salaries they still owe to the players.“We try to become directly involved but we never receive any responses from the Indian Premier League, which is frustrating for all,” May told ‘Espncricinfo.com’.

He also said that the FICA had suggested players to make queries through their home boards, as it has been rendered powerless by the IPL’s stone­walling. 

“The reality of the situation is we’re sitting in the background advising the players on these particular issues. 

If they can’t get addressed, we’ll look into the matter in legal terms, how (we can) pursue these monies.”

Some members of the Royal Challengers squad, including captain Daniel Vettori, are still awaiting the first instalment of their pay, while salaries are also owed to players of Deccan Chargers.
