Viv Richards slams ICC for blatant double standards
Sir Vivian Richards lashed out at the International Cricket Council for its official reprimand of West Indies. A furious Richards said that the governing body had one rule for Darren Sammy’s side and another for the Indian cricket team.
“There are rules in the one-day game under the auspices of the ICC, like for instance the system where you go back to the third umpire and things like that,” Richards was quoted saying by the ‘Jamaican Observer’ on Thursday (April 28).
“So, if you are the sole governing body of world cricket, then everyone should be coming under the same umbrella. The Indians do not play certain things the ICC may have in its rules. They totally ignore that and they have been getting away with it for years,” Richards said.
