Cricket news - BCCI formally recognises Indian Cricketers' Association (ICA)

The association was formed on July 5, 2019.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has officially recognised the Indian Cricketers' Association (ICA), which was formed on July 5, 2019 under Section 8 of the Companies Act, 2013. The Indian board confirmed the development via a notice on its official website, stating that the ICA - a non-profit company aimed at conserving and advancing the welfare of former players - is in the process of incorporation.

With this move, BCCI joins a host of other boards like ECB and CA to have an official players' association, though this one currently is only designed to cater to former cricketers.

In another notice, BCCI has also put out the membership criteria for the ICA as follows:

- Male and female ex-cricketers, who have played at least one International Cricket Match in any format of the game at the senior level

- Male ex-cricketers, who have played at least Ten First Class Matches in any format of the game at the senior level;

- Female ex-cricketers, who have played at least Five First Class Matches in any format of the game at the senior level; and

- Differently-abled ex-cricketers, who have played either International Cricket or firstclass cricket, where such cricket is recognised as such by the ICC or the BCCI and is organised by the BCCI or a body recognised by the ICC or the BCCI, in any format of the game at the senior level.

Furthermore, as per BCCI's Supreme Court-approved constitution that was registered last August, the ICA should have representation in BCCI's nine-member Apex Council (two members - one male, one female), as well as in the IPL Governing council (one member).
