Sydney, Feb 14 (IANS) Cricket Australia (CA) Thursday reiterated that it is keen to see the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)-sanctioned Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 competition go ahead.


CA chief executive Officer James Sutherland said the Australian board was continuing to work through complex details relating to the players' contractual obligations in the IPL competition.

"We have always said we want to see IPL succeed, but on the basis that it does not compromise (the) International Cricket Council (ICC) Future Tours Programme," he said.

Sutherland said: "There is a lot of detail involved in aligning existing contractual obligations with those of this new Indian domestic competition.

"But we are approaching this with an open mind on trying to resolve the issue in a manner which allows IPL to go ahead with Australian player participation, when available, and allow the Champions Twenty20 concept to then be finalised so that Indian, South African, England and Australian domestic Twenty20 sides can meet in a tournament to decide the best of the best," he added.

CA also confirmed its policy on player participation in unofficial cricket events whereby selectors will treat CA and state players, who take part only in ICC-approved matches, more favourably than those who do not.

In accordance with relevant ICC regulations and player contract requirements, players will not be offered contracts or be permitted to continue to be a party to contracts if, during the term of those contracts, they take part in unofficial cricket events.
