The International Cricket Council (ICC) has denied any wrongdoing following allegations of vote fixing during ICC committee elections, and is now considering referring the case to an ethics officer.

FICA (Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations)’s CEO Tim May was reportedly booted out of the ICC committee in favour of Indian sports commentator Laxman Sivaramakrishnan, despite being fully backed by the 10 voting test captains before they were allegedly pressured to re-vote for Sivaramakrishnan by the influential Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

An ICC statement read: “The ICC is concerned to note a number of factual inaccuracies appearing in the media in respect of the results of the voting and the underlying basis for the board decision that a re-vote was necessary, as well as unsupported allegations of impropriety in the voting process.” 

After receiving a request from FICA to refer the matter to an ethics officer, the ICC said: “This request is being considered, but… the ICC has seen no evidence that supports allegations now being made that captains were put under pressure by their member boards to vote for a particular individual.”
