Harris plays down ICL's financial crisis

Harris plays down ICL's financial crisis

Chris Harris has dismissed suggestions that the ICL is facing financial crisis.

Wellington: Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Harris has dismissed suggestions that the rebel Indian Cricket League is facing a financial crisis.

The ICL organisers had recently deferred their World Series tournament to October, citing global recession. The event was to kick-off next month.

There were talks that many foreign players had not received their last due payment from the organisers, but Harris is not worried.

"Payments have always been a little bit slow coming out of India. It's always been the way. To be honest, I'm not concerned at all because the payments have always arrived until this point in time.

"We've been told the next payments will be coming through this week. They've never not paid us before," Harris said.

Harris, who leads Hyderabad Heroes in the rebel league, also played down the delaying of the World Series event.

"There have been changes to it in the past and generally dates have changed a number of times. All the tournaments have gone ahead as planned," Harris was quoted as saying by the Dominion Post.
